Dr Mikael Grondeau is a Postdoctoral Researcher in Fluid Dynamics within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Mikaël Grondeau studied between 2009 and 2014 for a Mechanical Engineer degree at l’Ecole Nationale Supérieur d’Arts et Métiers (ENSAM) and for a Master degree in naval environment at the French Naval Academy. He obtained a PhD in 2018 at the University of Caen Normandy. His PhD thesis was entitled “Modelling of the wake of a tidal turbine with the Lattice Boltzmann Method”. He then pursued his research as a postdoc at the University of Caen, working on actuator line modelling of vertical axis tidal turbines with the lattice Boltzmann method.

Since December 2019, he is a postdoc at the University of Southampton in the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics research group. His work is mainly focused on using the lattice Boltzmann method for studying the aerodynamics and aeroacoustics of turbulent flow over and past permeable and rough surfaces. He also actively takes part in extended the capability of the AMROC software for lattice Boltzmann method modelling.
