Marc Avila studied mathematics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and at the University of Glasgow. From 2005 to 2008 he did his doctorate on fluid mechanics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona. Half of his graduation time he spent at the Arizona State University as a research scholar. After his graduation, he was a postdoc at the Max-Planck-Institut für Dynamik und Selbstorganisation in Göttingen working with Prof. Björn Hof. From 2011 to 2016 he held a professorship for simulation in nano- and microfluidic mechanics in the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. Since March 2016 he is the Executive Director of the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) and Professor for fluid mechanics at the Faculty of Production Engineering of the University of Bremen. For his work on turbulence he received the Young Scientist Award of the European Mechanics Society in 2009, and in 2018, he was awarded the Richard-von-Mises Prize of the International Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM). He aims at supporting the new generations of young scientists and engineers, as well as increasing the impact of science beyond the scientific community
