Bernard Geurts is an expert in the field of computational modeling of fluid flow in complex domains. He develops and analyses novel numerical methods for discretization of partial differential equation models. His focus is on multiscale modeling and simulation. Within CCER he contributes to understanding and innovation in future energy systems, with ambitions in ‘scavenging applications’ such as thermal storage, heat transfer and thermo-electricity, for which he creates large-scale computing strategies.
Geurts was the founding scientific director of the Applied Mathematics Institute in the Netherlands and is the chair of the scientific program committee of ERCOFTAC, the European Research Community On Flow, Turbulence And Combustion.
