Carola König is Vice Dean International and a Senior Lecturer in the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences at Brunel University London. Following her degree in Mechanical Engineering (Dipl-Ing) from the University of Stuttgart, Germany in 1992 and a short period in the automotive industry she obtained a PhD from Brunel in 1998. Her expertise is in Fluid Mechanics, including CFD, within a variety of multi-disciplinary environments which comprise biomedical and bioprocess engineering as well as thermofluids engineering. Prior to her international role she was Course Director of Brunel’s Flood and Coastal Engineering programmes, a programme suite of both, undergraduate and postgraduate courses sponsored by the Environment Agency and co-delivered with HR Wallingford, a renowned, independent civil engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation. In conjunction to that role, her research has widened to include also adaptation to climate change, such as flooding, sea level rise and health. She is a Charted Engineer and Member of the IMechE where she is the immediate past Chair of the Thermofluids Group and a member of its Climate Change Adaptation Working Group. She is also a Fellow of the Institute of the Higher Education Academy and has a keen interest in education management.
