Christian Oliver Paschereit
Christian Oliver Paschereit was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1963. He studied physical engineering at the Technische Universität Berlin and Ecole Centrale de Lyon and got his M.A. degree in 1988. He received his Ph.D. degree on flow control (summa cum laude) from the Technical University Berlin and University of Arizona in 1992. He then moved to industry and had multiple leading management position at ABB and ALSTOM in Switzerland. Since 2003, he works as a Full Professor at the Technische Universität Berlin and holds the Chair of fluid dynamics. His research background and interest cover a broad spectrum of topics related to fluid mechanics, turbulence, building and vessel aerodynamics, wind power, flow control, acoustics, combustion technology, thermoacoustics, and gas turbine technology and energy. His vision is the development of technologies for efficient energy conversion with minimal CO2 impact. His research achievements are demonstrated by more than 150 Journal and conference publications. The research had not only academic interest but also was important for industrial applications as it is documented in over 70 patent publications and a number of industrial awards. Further national and international recognition of his work was given by two best paper awards and the prestigious ERC Advanced Grant which he received in 2009 for his project GREENEST (Gas turbine combustion with Reduced EmissioNs Employing extreme STeam injection). His current work covers in addition to the above research on clean energy, conversion systems like ultra-low emission gas turbines, wind turbines, and heating systems.
