I am a permanent member of the Faculty with own teaching. My research focuses on Fluid Dynamics and modeling flow. I am a member of the Lattice Boltzmann Research Group. Here we work and teach in a strong collaboration with process engineers. I am a member of the graduate schools SiMET, where we model and simulate the life span of batteries and KCDS about Computational and Data Science.

I am currently a deputy speaker in the KIT-Centre MathSEE in the area Mathematical modeling, differential equations, numerics, simulation. I helped to organise our first workshop in 2020 and, in particular, I organised the panel discussion.

For the German Association of Mathematicians (DMV) I am serving as Editor-in-Chief of our journal Mitteilungen der DMV (2021-2024).

You can find my published papers on the platform Open Alex.

Our Podcast Modellansatz shows fascinating applications of mathematics all around us. There are quite a few English episodes.

Together with the University of Marseille and INRIA méditerranée we organized two German-French Summerschools on Fluid Mechanics: 2010 in Bad Herrenalb and 2012 in Nice.

  • Four research projects were funded by StartUp-Budgets of KIT.
  • We were working successfully in the long term BMBF Project Lehre^Forschung (2012-2020)
