Personal profile


I'm an applied mathematician with interests in scientific computing in general and high performance computing and open source software development in particular, for example, the Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment (DUNE) and the Open Porous Media Initiative (OPM) with focus on higher order and adaptive computational methods for partial differential equations and it's applications, ranging from climate dynamics and weather forecast to porous media.


  • User friendly open-source software for HPC
  • Development of next generation simulation tools for turbulent fluid flow.
  • Structure preserving methods for multiphase flow with applications to X-ray multi-projection imaging (see Galery below)
  • Adaptive mesh refinement
  • Discontinuous Galerkin methods



A nice demonstration tool about partial differential equations and simulations is dune-ash. It's part of
