Luc Pastur is Associate Professor at ENSTA Paris, Institut Polytechnique of Paris. He is the head of large-scale facilities, including wind-tunnels and water-channels at ENSTA Paris, dealing both with leading-edge experimental and theoretical research. He has extensive experience on both experimental setups and metrology in fluid mechanics and approaches in the theoretical framework of dynamical system theory. He was involved and holder of several research projects, granted by the French research agency (ANR), the Airbus foundation, military and industrial contracts (DGA, EDF, CEA), to cite only some of them. He contributed to more than 53 scientific publications in topics dedicated to self-sustained oscillating flows, instabilities, flow control, model reduction, Lagrangian mixing, transitions to space-time chaos, etc. He has set up an interdisciplinary international team of leading researchers, involving the Harbin Institute of Technology (Shenzhen), University of Buenos Aires (Argentine), University of Toronto (Canada), University of Jaén (Spain), University of Liverpool (UK), University of Khalifa (Abu Dhabi).
