Professional Activities & Interests / Biographical Information

Philipp Grete joined the MSU Department of Physics and Astronomy as a Research Associate working with Associate Professor Brian O'Shea in October 2016.

His primary research interests include (magneto)hydrodynamic turbulence and its role in (astro)physical processes, using computer simulations to further our understanding of such topics as energy transfer in systems subject to compressible MHD turbulence.

In September 2017, the German Astronomical Society (AG) announced that Dr. Grete's Ph.D. dissertation, "Large eddy simulations of compressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence", had won its 2017 Doctoral Thesis Award.
