Simone Sebben

Docent at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Vehicle Engineering and Autonomous Systems

Simone Sebben is associate professor within the research group Road Vehicle Aerodynamics & Thermal Management. She obtained her Ph.D. at McGill University in Canada in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Simone Sebben has over 18 years’ of industrial experience in the field of aerodynamics. The core of her work is within CFD, although all students under her supervision work both numerically and experimentally. Her group works with applied problems which are directly related to industrial applications in the vehicle industry.
