About Me

Hello, my name is Philipp and I’m a graduated mechanical engineer (B.Eng) and a computational engineer (M.Sc.).

After secondary school, I started working as a precision mechanic with an apprenticeship at Münster University of Applied Sciences. Getting expertise in four years of crafting test benches, mechanical products, and maintaining machines I decided to go on learning. So I signed in to get my high school diploma and ended up as a student at Münster University of Applied Sciences.

I enrolled for the bachelor of general mechanical engineering. From the beginning I started working in the laboratory for materials technology, joining technology, and surface technology. Besides the theoretical background in adhesive technology I also learned how to set up and work on experiments. In the meantime, I developed interests in the areas of physics, Computational-Fluid-Dynamics (CFD), and Finite-Element-Analyse (FEA).

My bachelor thesis took place at 2G Energy AG in Heek, where I analyzed and developed a static mixing system for a selective catalytic reduction on the base of CFD, and in the use of OpenFOAM.

To strengthen my background in CFD and FEM I decided to go on and study as a master’s student in computational engineering. This time occupied my knowledge in robotics, automation, and programming.

In my scientific works, I analyzed the storage of hydrogen using Ebsilon, and the behavior of compressible real gas simulations using OpenFOAM.

I ended up with a master’s thesis at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with the work of a digital twin of an aircraft wing.

At the moment I’m proud to be part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) as a scientific researcher. Therefore, I work on the digital transformation in the field of maintenance in aviation and the vision of a digital twin.
