Axelle Viré

Axelle Viré graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 2006 from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium) and obtained a PhD in computational physics from the same university in 2010. She then worked at Imperial College London (UK) under a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Intra-European Fellowship (ICFLOAT project) and developed high-fidelity computational tools for the modelling of fluid-structure interactions in the context of offshore wind and tidal turbines. In 2013, she was appointed as Assistant Professor in wind energy at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft (The Netherlands). She also secured a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Career Integration grant (NUMIWING project) to apply her numerical models to the simulation of airborne wind energy systems. Since 2020, Axelle is the coordinator of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network STEP4WIND, a joint industrial doctorate programme training 10 PhD students to the field of floating offshore wind energy. At TU Delft, Axelle coordinates the Offshore Wind Energy Minor programme for 3rd-year BSc students and teaches topics related to computational fluid dynamics and fundamentals aspects of offshore wind energy. She also leads an online course for professionals on the technology of offshore wind energy. Aside from her teaching and research work, Axelle has occupied high positions in international Boards, such as Vice-Chair of the Marie Curie Alumni Association and Chair of the Aerospace Faculty’s Staff Council at TU Delft. Finally, she is a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Wind Energy.
