Biography
Benjamin Sanderse works as a tenure track researcher in the Scientific Computing group, focusing on numerical methods for uncertainty quantification and for solving partial differential equations occurring in fluid flow problems. Prior to his tenure track position, he worked at Shell Technology Centre Amsterdam on research and development of multiphase flow simulators in oil and gas applications. His PhD research was on new numerical methods for simulating incompressible flows occurring in wind energy applications, a combined position at Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) and CWI. He obtained his PhD degree cum laude (with honours) in 2013 from Eindhoven University of Technology. Before starting his PhD degree, he received his MSc degree in Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology in 2008.Research
My research interest is to develop efficient methods for making predictions under uncertainty of physical systems by developing new methodologies that combine physical modelling approaches and datadriven techniques, in particular to applications involving fluid dynamic problems.
Currently the following two topics have my main interest:
 Uncertainty quantification: surrogate modelling for parametric PDEs, efficient solvers for Bayesian inverse problems, statistical learning for closure models, novel quadrature rules (with Laurent van den Bos, Yous van Halder).
 Computational fluid dynamics (CFD): time integration methods for differentialalgebraic equations arising from fluid dynamic problems, such as incompressible singlephase and multiphase NavierStokes equations.
Applications:
 Wind energy and in particular turbulent wind turbine wakes (EUROS project).
 Multiphase flow in reservoirs, wells, and pipelines.
 Sloshing of liquids in tankers (SLING project).
