Full professor since September 2020.

Associate professor from February 2013 until August 2020.

Ph.D. in April 2010.
Development of Algorithms for the Partitioned Simulation of Strongly Coupled Fluid-Structure Interaction Problems

M.Sc. in June 2006.
Numerical study of bubble and droplet dynamics with partitioned solvers

My publications and other information can be found in my curriculum vitae.


My research is focused on numerical simulation of fluid-structure interaction (FSI) using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational solid mechanics (CSM), with focus on the fluid mechanics. I develop quasi-Newton algorithms for partitioned simulation of FSI and apply them in various fields. More information can be found on the home page of the fluid mechanics group.
