Bernd R. Noack is Distinguished Professor at Harbin Institute of Technology, Shenzhen, and Honorary Professor and Chair in Turbulence Control at TU Berlin.
He develops closed-loop turbulence control solutions for cars, airplanes and transport systems in an interdisciplinary effort with leading groups in China, Europe and USA/Canada. His team is advancing the frontiers of artificial intelligence in fluid mechanics. He invented and is pioneering machine learning control, the first automated learning of control laws in an experiment. Another focus is placed on nonlinear control-oriented reduced-order models, including the automated development of digital twins from data.
He has co-authored over 250 refereed publications, including over 100 international Journal articles, 2 patents, 2 review articles, 2 Springer textbooks and 2 other books. His work has been honored by numerous awards, e.g., the outstanding faculty award at HIT (2020-2021), the inclusion in the Mendeley/Stanford Highly Cited Researchers (2021), a CNRS Scientific Excellence award (2014-2018), a Fellowship of the American Physical Society (2012), a Senior ANR Chair of Excellence in France (2010-2015), and the von Mises Award of the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (2005).
