Kerstin Avila

Fundamentals of Turbulence and Complex Systems

Kerstin Avila appointed

Dr. Kerstin Avila has been appointed Professor of the Fundamentals of Turbulence and Complex Systems at the Institute of Physics. She is also a new member of the ForWind Center for Wind Energy Research.

Prior to joining the University of Oldenburg she was a postdoctoral researcher and project manager at the University of Bremen's Faculty of Production Engineering and at the Leibniz-Institut für Werkstofforientierte Technologien (IWT) in Bremen. Professor Avila studied meteorology and physics in Kiel. She completed her doctorate in 2013 at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen and the University of Göttingen.

Afterwards, she held research positions at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and the University of Bremen's Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM). Since 2019 she has led two research projects on turbulent flows at the University of Bremen. Her research focuses on interactions between regions where flow moves uniformly and those where turbulence occurs. Avila is a reviewer for several journals as well as for the German Research Foundation (DFG).
