The development of future, innovative, and marketable products in the field of fluid dynamics is extremely exciting
“Curiosity is the key to problem solving.” (Galileo Galilei)
In our group, we develop components and simulation methods in the field of fluid dynamics. We devise experimental analyses and use various simulation tools to investigate fluid-dynamic phenomena. I am “at home” in both domains.

Please tell us what fascinates you most about research.
Research allows (requires) you to think outside the box, to engage intensively with a topic, and sometimes even to take unorthodox paths to achieve a goal. Retaining your curiosity and always being able to be inspired by new technologies again and again is important for being able to conduct research. I can apply cross-domain knowledge to investigate individual fluid-dynamic problems, as well as to perform overall system analyses. What's more, I can work with the current IoT technologies and artificial intelligence and integrate them into our fluid-dynamic products and methods.
What makes research done at Bosch so special?
Of particular note here is the diversity of topics that we work on at Bosch CR. Variety prevails, and not just in the topics, but also in terms of the co-workers and their qualifications. Often, even after many years, it is astonishing to see what Bosch researches and develops. This goes far beyond their widely known products. And having the opportunity to engage with new topics and tackle them head-on is something I also consider special. Being within easy distance makes it possible to talk to researchers from other disciplines, so any technical questions can be clarified quickly. Here, I am able to fully apply my knowledge and learn new things every day.
What research topics are you currently working on at Bosch?
In the field of fluid dynamics, one of my focal points is the advance engineering of high-pressure spray applications, for example in the fields of material processing, food technology, the pharmaceutical industry, and medical technology. Apart from new experimental structures, I use and extend complex simulation methods for the computation of flows within components, as well as of spray formation and dispersion. I am also involved in the field of air quality. As well as technically recording environmental data, I calculate the distribution of pollutants in cities in order to better understand the cause–effect relationships between emissions and immissions. This information is important so as to be able to develop efficient solutions for clean air.
What are the biggest scientific challenges in your field of research?
Digital transformation is in full swing. Our products have to be reconsidered. Reconsidered with new technologies in mind, such as global networking. Fast, powerful, and above all inexpensive processors are leading to an increasing level of mechatronization in our hydraulic components. Global developments have become very rapid, and this is where we need to keep pace and even be faster so as to be able to bring good products to the market.
How do the results of your research become part of solutions "Invented for life"?
I am involved in innovation activities in various domains, such as smart Agriculture, health care solutions, and clean air. The ideas that are generated here to open up new products and business fields for Bosch aim at energy efficiency, conservation of resources, and measures that make life more livable – in other words, at products “Invented for life.”
