Dr. Claudia Brunner is the group leader of the Minerva Fast Track Group on Turbulence and Wind Energy in the department of Prof. Bodenschatz at the MPI-DS. Her research focuses on experimental studies of large-scale fluid dynamics involving turbulence and unsteady effects. She is particularly interested in flows that are relevant for the fields of energy and the environment, with a particular focus on wind energy, and she supplements her engineering research with studies of relevant policy questions.
Before becoming a group leader in January 2023, Dr. Brunner was a postdoc with Prof. Bodenschatz. She received her PhD in May 2022 from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University, where she was advised by Prof. Marcus Hultmark. Dr. Brunner received a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship from the Department of Defense, and a Science, Technology and Environmental Policy Fellowship from the High Meadows Environmental Institute and the School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. She holds an M.A. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a B.A. in International Relations from Stanford University.
