Personal profile

Research profile

Léo Friedrich is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Electromechanics and Power Electronics Group within the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research focuses on the numerical modeling of low-frequency electromagnetic problems, in particular involving eddy currents and nonlinear phenomena, in the context of design and shape optimization of magnetic devices. Léo develops specific frequency-domain finite-element solvers in the framework of isogeometric analysis (IGA), which aims to the fast and accurate computation of steady-state solutions of electromagnetic and thermal field distributions on computer-aided design (CAD) models of electrical machines.

My passion is the research and development of numerical tools that enable the design-through-analysis of future industrial systems.

Academic background

Léo Friedrich was born in Courbevoie, France, in 1993. In 2013, he finished the intensive 2-year curriculum «classes préparatoires» in Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering Sciences (MPSI/PSI) at Lycée Marcelin Berthelot, Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, France.  In 2016, he received his «diplôme d’ingénieur» which is equivalent to an M.Sc. degree in Engineering, specialized in Physics and Nanoscience, from the «Grande École» Phelma - Grenoble INP, Université Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble, France. As of 2016, Léo joined the Eindhoven University of Technology, where he first conducted his Master’s Graduation project, researching and modeling piezoelectric and electromagnetic solutions for harvesting surrounding vibrational energy, before starting his Ph.D.
