Vincent Leroy started out at Centrale Nantes as an engineering student. After a PhD here on the numerical simulation of offshore floating wind turbines and a post-doc in collaboration with the Institute of Marine Technology at NTNU in Norway, he took up a position as assistant professor in experimental hydrodynamics in Centrale Nantes in 2021.

Vincent works on the experimental modelling of offshore wind turbines, and more specifically on wave-structure interaction in the IIHNE research group in the Research Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics & Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA).
