I'm a member of the project C1, lead by Prof. Dr. Andreas Rieder and apl. Prof. Dr. Peer Christian Kunstmann. This project is part of the CRC 1173 wave phenomena: analysis and numerics.



We developed a playground to interactively simulate the behavior of acoustic waves and FWI (Full Waveform Inversion) in inhomogenuous media.
You can find more information at Seismic Imaging.


For my master's thesis, i implemented the Fast Marching algorithm for solving the eikonal equation
\lvert \nabla\tau(x) \rvert^2 = \frac{1}{c^2(x)}
(and most of all a factored version) as a Python extension in C++. The source code and more information can be found on GitHub. The easiest way to install this package is via pip.
