    Work experience

     

    Dates

    From October 2008 – present day

    Occupation or position held

    Project Scientist and Discipline Coordinator (at the European Space Agency, ESTEC, Netherlands)

    Main activities and responsibilities

    Within the context of the European Programme for Life and Physical Sciences in Space (ELIPS), a programme covering in particular a very broad range of physics topics, I am the Scientific Coordinator for Fluid Dynamics, Two-phase Heat transfer and Combustion. This encompasses end-to-end involvement in all space projects in the field.

     

    The tasks include:

     

    ×     Coordinate the overall programme in the field with particular attention to fundamental problems in studies requiring long-duration weightlessness (experiments targeting the International Space Station (ISS) as well as sounding rocket missions and other platforms with controllable gravity level). I supervise the activities of several International networks of scientists and various research and applications projects that are often interdisciplinary in nature, involve many laboratories worldwide as well as several industrial partners.

    ×     Support the formulation of the fundamental problems and the identification of the different scientific and industry relevant concerns.

    ×     Identify technology development studies in coordination with other ESA entities, as well as ensure the readiness of technologies required for future experiments.

    ×     Support the organisation of Calls for Proposals, the scientific and technical evaluation of the proposals as well as subsequent regular scientific reviews of the programme.

    ×     Present information to and seeking advice from the Science Advisory Groups of ESA on scientific priorities.

    ×     Define and regularly re-assess scientific requirements of selected space experiments and as Project Scientist; translate these into instrument performance requirements to the engineering teams in charge of the instrument development and its in-orbit operations.

    ×     Review regularly the instrument design and performance in the course of the development and its compliance with the scientific objectives.

    ×     In turn, promote the maximisation of the scientific return based on the actual instrument performance.

    ×     Support the science teams throughout the data exploitation phase.

    ×     Disseminate information on the programme at conferences, seek relevant complementary competences to consolidate the teams, and also provide inputs on the scientific aspects of the experiments for public relations purposes to relevant entities at ESA.

    ×     Raise the awareness of the scientific achievements towards national delegations funding the programme and other scientific funding organisations and industry.
