Thibaud Fritz

Research Assistant


I come from Paris, France and completed my Bachelor of Science and Master’s degree at Ecole Centrale Paris. Having a solid background in applied mathematics and fluid mechanics, my interests lie in air-breathing propulsion, environmental modeling as well as numerical methods for engineering applications.¬†Additionally, I play volleyball for fun and enjoy reading and talking about math!



My research project aims at quantifying how aircraft emissions affect the background atmosphere at the plume scale. My research at LAE thus focuses on the implementation of a sub-grid scale plume model, including chemical, micro-physical and dynamical processes.
