Kees Venner: Professor of Fluid Dynamics
‘It’s not all about achievements’
‘Sometimes I think I’d like to step out of my busy schedule, but I really enjoy what I do. I do plenty of challenging things,’ says Kees Venner and one can only agree. The UT professor rode his motorcycle to Israel right after the First Gulf War, he jumped out of an airplane and, as a daily challenge, he trains and walks five big dogs. He leads a research group. And he seems to handle it all with the precision and mindfulness of a karate ‘master’ – which he also happens to be.
