Luc Dupré

Luc Dupre was born in 1966. He received the electrical and mechanical engineering degree and the Ph.D. degree in applied sciences from the Ghent University, Belgium, in 1989 and 1995, respectively. In 1989, he joined the Department of Electromechanical, Systems- and Metal Engineering of Ghent University, as a research assistant. In 1996, he was a postdoctoral researcher for the Fund of Scientific Research-Flanders and in 1998 for six months a visiting post-doctoral fellow at Istituto Elettrotecnico Nazionale 'Galileo Ferraris', in Torino (Italy). In 2002, he became an associate professor at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, Ghent University and since 2006 he is senior full professor at that faculty. His research interests mainly include numerical methods for low frequency electromagnetism (in particular for electrical machines), modeling and characterization of soft magnetic materials, inverse problems and optimization in (bio)electromagnetism.
