#9 Prof. Dr. Tom Lahmer (2. Juni 2016)
"Methods to Establish Flexible Designs in Engineering"
2 June 2016 (Thursday), Start: 8 pm
Coudraystrasse 11C - Room001
The state of art in the engineering product design is based on virtual product optimization, where techniques of nonlinear optimization and mechanical models are coupled. Frequently, visible improvements of standard structures can be obtained. The problem is that often, the conditions under which the structures will be used are unknown: think, e.g. of the rotation-speed of a wind power plant. In the talk, methods will be proposed that allow the consideration of multiple operating points, and one academic example will be discussed in detail.
At the end of the talk, the Q&A session was open for discussing the topic and for exchanging with Prof. Lahmer on his career path.
# 8 Dr. Nikolai Roskamm (30 November 2015)
“Approaching the unoccupied city: Towards a post-foundational urban theory”
Dr. Nikolai Roskamm
Urban planner and urban researcher, FH Erfurt / Technische Universität Wien (Österreich)
#7 Dr.-Ing. Alexander Beck (21.05.2015)
Alexander Beck did his doctorate while simultaneously working, is self-employed with architectural office in Blaufelden und Schwäbisch Hall andalso CEO / Managing Director of German Planning and Development GmbH.
After the event everyone was invited to continue talks to the „Alt-Weimar“ („Schmales Handtuch“) for dinner and drinks.
#6 Dr. Sukanya Krishnamurthy, Eindhoven University of Technology, NL (14.11.2014)
Experiences in Formal & Informal Urbanization Processes,
and Interdisciplinary Research
With some little snacks and beverages for a the pleasant atmosphere we had inspiring talks at the Institute for European Urban Studies. Sukanya gave precious insights how to successfully start a postdoctoral career within a multinational and multidisciplinary setting. She worked as an architect, designer, lecturer and researcher in Bangalore (India), Aachen, Dessau, Weimar (Germany) and Toronto (Canada). Besides her career experience we had the chance to exchange with her in a variety of discourses such as Urban Morphology, Urbanization Process, Urban Growth Dynamics, Informal Spatial Practices and Interdisciplinary Research Methods.
#5 Dr. Kulkarni, Hochtief Infrastructure Cologne (June 17th, 2014)
What comes after the PhD? Experiences in International Project Management
# 4 Pattabhi Ramaiah (June 19th, 2014)
Pattabhi Ramaiah - Experiences in Computational Methods and Composite Materials
#3 Hossein Talebi (24.4.2014)
"Experiences in Modeling and Simulation in Solid Mechanics"
Dr. Hossein Talebi works as Postdoc at the GRK 1462 (research training group), Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
#2 Daniela Brasil / Jerzy Elżanowski (8.1.2014)
The second Alumni meeting hosted two guests: Daniela Brasil, an academic teacher in fine arts at TU Graz/Austria, and Jerzy Elżanowski who is about to accomplish his joint PhD at the Bauhaus and British Columbia University/Canada. The two guests created a kind of panel discussion focused on their experiences. We received a mixed set of answers which proved how diverse approaches there might be to a PhD under the same roof of the Faculty of Architecture.
#1 Nathalie Jean Baptiste - Experiences in Urban Development in Developing Countries (4.12.2013)
At the first meeting of the Alumni Meeting Series we had the opportunity to meet Nathalie Jean-Baptiste, graduated 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Max Welch-Guerra (topic: People centered approach towards food waste management in the urban environment of Mexico), currently employed at UFZ-Leipzig (Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research). Nathalie introduced herself as a pracademic, a researcher with strong bonds to practice. Our guest presented her experiences in urban development in developing countries which was followed by a series of questions.
