AVT Young Contributor Award

VKI is happy to announce that Dr. Guillaume Grossir , research engineer at the von Karman Institute, has recently been recognized with the “AVT Panel Young Contributor Award” for all his research work within the framework of NATO Applied Vehicle Technology Panel.

This award recognizes the remarkable work carried out by Guillaume in the field of hypersonic flow. His contribution to publications for AVT-240 on “Hypersonic Boundary-Layer Transition Prediction “

testifies his continuous effort and technical expertise to bridge the gap between modern mechanism-based prediction methods and existing empirical methods in the prediction of transition in hypersonic flows which are of utmost relevance for the STO community and NATO. Beside his technical contributions Guillaume showed significant leadership skills as an organizer and Co-Chair of the AVT-325 Lecture Series on “Flow Characterization and Modeling of Hypersonic Wind tunnels“.

In addition, he made a noticeable and substantial contribution to the Educational Notes of AVT-325 on the same topic which will serve as the first step toward hypersonics for many young scientists to come.

The work of Guillaume at the von Karman is giving guidance to Research Master students at the VKI thereby contributing to the dissemination of knowledge, insight, and know-how about hypersonics to young scientists in the spirit of Theodore Von Kármán.

This eventually strengthens the link as well between the VKI and the NATO STO/AVT community.
