The domain of research of Benoît Fiorina is related to the modeling and the simulation of turbulent reactive flows, including detailed chemistry effects. Benoît Fiorina has completed his PhD studies at the EM2C laboratory, Ecole Centrale Paris. Then, he spent two years at Stanford as a post-doctoral fellow. Since 2006, he has been successively assistant professor, then professor at the Ecole Centrale Paris. His major research achievements are the development of combustion models for advanced CFD methods. More precisely, it relies on the introduction of tabulated chemistry in Large Eddy Simulations. The turbulent combustion models are currently transferred to industrial partners. These numerical tools are implemented in the official release of the CFD codes AVBP and YALES2, widely used by CERFACS, SAFRAN, GDF-SUEZ, IFP-EN and numerous CNRS laboratories. Benoît Fiorina's work leads to 27 publications in international peer-reviewed journals. He passed his Habilitation diploma to conduct research in September 2012. Since 2014, he has been elected President of the French section of the Combustion Institute.
