Robert Krewinkel, new Head of the Institute

Robert Krewinkel was born in Heerlen (The Netherlands) in 1979. He studied Mechanical Engineering and Anglistics at the RWTH Aachen in Germany. In 2012 he received his PhD on the “Conjugate Calculation of Effusion Cooled Multi-Layer Systems for Gas Turbines”. Since 2013 he has worked in different fields on the development of gas turbines at the MAN Energy Solutions SE in Oberhausen. During this time, he worked amongst others as team leader for cooling, secondary air and thermal systems and was responsible for research.

Since 1st October Robert Krewinkel is head of the Institute of Thermal Turbomachinery and Machine Dynamic.
