Christian Windt graduated from the Hamburg University of Technology with a B.Sc in Mechanical Engineering (2013) and a M.Sc. in Energy Systems (2016). In 2020, Christian received a PhD from Maynooth University, with a thesis focused on high-fidelity numerical hydrodynamic modelling of wave energy converters in the CFD framework under controlled conditions.

Currently, Christian holds a post-doctoral position at the Leichtweiß-Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources (LWI), Technische Universität Braunschweig, in Germany. At the LWI, Christian works as the project coordinator of the NuLIMAS project, aiming at the development of a numerical toolbox for the modelling of seabed liquefaction.
