Fields of expertise
Applied Mathematics and Computational Physics, Numerical Methods for PDEs, Computational Linear Algebra, Statistical/Machine Learning
I hold degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Physics from the University of Stuttgart. During my Master studies I have specialized in the field of numerical simulation methods for fluid problems. I visited Prof. Hesthaven at EPFL in 2015 to work on my Master thesis. We worked on applying the Discontinuous Galerkin methods to the Shallow Water Equations in order to simulate large-scale Tsunami events such as the 2008 Tohoku tsunami. In February 2017 I joined MCSS as doctoral student. In my PhD thesis I study fast approximate solvers, that can be used as preconditioners for wave problems.
