Since 2012 Alexander Behr has studied chemical engineering at TU Dortmund University. He passed his bachelor thesis “Mesh Independency Study of Slug Flow in a Micro-Capillary Reactor using OpenFOAM” at the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics. Following this, he supported Dr.-Ing. Konrad Boettcher from 2018 to 2020 as a student assistant building a virtual reality based environment to improve the teaching of fluid mechanics. He completed his master at the Laboratory of Equipment Design with the thesis “Simulation of a Heat Exchanger with Bionic Flow Distribution Designed by Evolutionary Algorithms“ in August 2020. In October 2020 he started as a research associate in the NFDI4Cat project at the Laboratory of Equipment Design focusing on ontology design.
