Marc Gerritsma received his M.S. degree and Ph.D. degree in mathematics and physical sciences from the University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands. The M.S. degree project concerned the implementation of flow models in the commercial finite element package DIANA, developed by TNO. The Ph.D. degree research focused on the application of finite volume methods to non-Newtonian flow models. In 1996, Marc moved to the University of Wales, in Aberystwyth, UK to work together with Professor Tim Phillips on spectral element methods for non-Newtonian flows. In 1998, he returned to The Netherlands to work as an Associate Professor in the Aerodynamics Group at the Department of Aerospace Engineering, TU Delft. His research interests include finite volume methods, finite element methods (least-squares finite element methods), spectral element methods, polynomial chaos for uncertainty quantification, and mimetic discretization techniques (application of differential geometry and algebraic topology in numerical methods).
