Liwei Chen is a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Nils Thuerey’s group since August 2019. His current research focuses on the development of deep learning models for the inference of Navier–Stokes solutions and exploring their potential engineering applications such as shape optimisation and flow control. Prior to his current position, he worked as a lead engineer at GE Global Research (München), research fellows at the University of Oxford and the University of Southampton and as a senior aerodynamics engineer at United Technologies Research Center (UTRC China). He obtained the doctorate in fluid mechanics from the University of Science and Technology of China (07.2010). He is experienced in computational fluid dynamics, turbulence modelling, aerodynamics and high-performance computing.
