Prof. Joachim Peinke graduated from the University of Tbingen with a diploma in Experimental Physics in and received his PhD with distinction in 1988 on "Nichtlinearitten und Chaos beim Elektronentransport in Halbleitern" (Nonlinearities and Chaos in the Transport of Electrons in Semiconductors) at the University of Tbingen. He became a researcher first at the University of Tbingen and then from 1990 to 1994 at the Centre de Recherches sur les Trs Basses Tempratures of the Centre National de la Recherche Sientifique in Grenoble. In 1992 he habilitated at the University of Tbingen, and in 1994 he went to the University of Bayreuth (Physics department) where he received the venia legendi. From 1993 until 1998 he was Heisenberg fellow of the Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft. In 1998 he became professor in Experimental Physics at the Department of Physics at the University of Oldenburg. His research topics are dynamical systems, turbulence, and stochastic systems and currently his research focuses mainly on wind energy. He is a wind energy expert in several commissions including the European technology platform TPWind, and is the vice president of the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE). He has published more than 300 papers.
