University of Luxembourg / LCSB
Research Associate
Laurent Heirendt was born in 1987 in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg (Europe). He received his BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland in 2009. A year later, he received his MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London in the UK, where his research and thesis focused on developing a general dynamic model for shimmy analysis of aircraft landing gear that is still in use today. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 in Aerospace Science from the University of Toronto, Canada. He developed a thermo-tribomechnical model of an aircraft landing gear, which led to a patent pending design of a critical aircraft landing gear component. He then worked in industry and oversaw the structural analysis of large aircraft docking structures.nRecently, Laurent started as a Research Associate at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine, where he works in the numerical optimization of large biochemical networks using Julia. Besides his mother tongue Luxembourgish, he is fluent in English, French and German, and he is currently learning Brazilian Portuguese.
