Interview with Professor David Schipf
David, Congratulations! Tell us more…
Thanks! Since September 2018, I am now working mainly as a research professor at University of Applied Science in the lovely city of Flensburg at the Baltic sea. I am the third professor at the Wind Energy Technology Institute (WETI) which is active in both research and teaching in wind energy with a close collaboration with industry. During a meeting of the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE), when the HS Flensburg became a member of the academy, I got aware of the open position.
What is your focus at WETI and how does this fit to sowento?
At the WETI, I will be teaching in the international master programme “Wind Engineering“. Further, I plan to dedicate my research time in near future to open issues in lidar-assisted control, systems engineering, and floating wind turbine control. Since sowento aims to continuously advance through a close link to research and education, my profession perfectly fits to my involvements in sowento.
What are your main tasks at sowento now?
As part-time work for sowento, I will coordinate the strategic development of the lidar-assisted control activities, support our clients in realizing their control projects and work as consultant for different stakeholders in the wind energy business.
