Benoît Pier is a CNRS research professor at the Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics Laboratory (LMFA).

His research in fluid dynamics focuses on instabilities and transition in open flows with particular focus on the effects of rotation and/or curvature on flow dynamics. His main interests lie in rather fundamental problems arising from a variety of practical contexts, such as boundary layers in the aeronautics industry, blood flow through arteries or particular flow dynamics when drilling for oil.
