Assoc. Prof. Mark Kelly has been at the Danish Technical University [DTU] for the past 15 years, working in meteorological sections within the department of Wind Energy there. His academic career began with outdoor sound propagation research at the National Center for Physical Acoustics and corresponding master’s degree from the University from Mississippi; this was followed by a PhD and post-doc in meteorology at the Pennsylvania State University, where he focused on large-eddy simulation of hurricane boundary layers affected by sea spray and waves. At DTU he has conducted research on topics bridging statistical fluid dynamics to applied meteorology, where he has also adapted his theoretical findings and developed forms for use in wind engineering. Areas of advancement include universal and statistical wind profiles affected by stability and terrain; probabilistic atmospheric flow representation and flow metrics for application (to wind energy and sound propagation); uncertainty quantification; atmospheric boundary layer dynamics; atmospheric turbulence; wind turbine noise. He has created and taught graduate-level courses at DTU and Copenhagen University on wind resources, applied micrometeorology, and atmospheric turbulence; advised 7 PhD students and numerous M.Sci. students; contributed to creating and updating several IEC standards; and actively worked on peer review for more than 20 journals spanning acoustics, meteorology, and fluid dynamics.
