Laura J. Lukassen studied Computational Engineering at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. She was member of the Graduate School of Excellence Computational Engineering at TU Darmstadt and received her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from TU Darmstadt in April 2015 supervised by Prof. Martin Oberlack and Prof. Dieter Bothe. During her doctoral studies she spent the fall term of 2012 as a Visiting Graduate Student at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA, in the group of Prof. Andrea Prosperetti working on the numerical simulation of particle flows. Her doctoral research was focused on the stochastic description of non-Brownian particles. Since June 2015 she is working in the field of statistics of turbulence with a focus on intermittency and space-time correlations in the group of Dr. Michael Wilczek at the MPIDS.
