Professor Federico Toschi holds the chair of Computational Physics of Multi-scale Transport Phenomena in the department of Physics and in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology. The CPMTP section has recently been established within the 3TU Centre of Excellence for Multiscale Phenomena. His research interests include fluid dynamics turbulence, statistical physics, micro and nano-fluids, numerical methods for fluid dynamics, high-performance computing. The focus of his current research are multi-scale problems related to the physics of fluid studied by means of state-of-the-art computational models. He has been awarded large scale computational grants (DEISA Extreme Computing Initiative, PRACE) to study the dynamics of heavy particles in turbulence and hemodynamics. He is the founder and administrator of the International CFD Database hosted at CINECA (Bologna, Italy), http://cfd.cineca.it. He served as chairman of the International Collaboration for Turbulence Research (ICTR, http://www.ictr.eu). He acted as Chair of the COST Action MP0806 on "Particles in turbulence" and is currently chair of the COST Action MP1305 "Flowing matter".
