I am an Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics at the University of Hamburg. My research is focused on the analysis and development of numerical methods for partial and ordinary differential equations. In particular, I am interested in the stability of these schemes as well as mimetic and structure-preserving techniques, allowing the transfer of results from the continuous level to the discrete one.

Research Interests

  • Numerical Analysis
    • Numerical schemes for hyperbolic balance laws and dispersive-dissipative equations: Discontinuous Galerkin methods, continuous and discontinuous spectral element methods, finite difference schemes, flux reconstruction, finite volume methods
    • Structure-preserving methods: Conservation/dissipation of entropy/energy, summation by parts operators, (skew-symmetric) splitting techniques, mimetic properties, filtering, artificial dissipation
    • Runge-Kutta methods, stability of time integration schemes
    • Adaptivity in time and space
    • Data-driven approaches combining analysis and data
    • Uncertainty quantification
  • Scientific Computing
    • Compressible Euler equations, shallow water equations, magnetic induction equation, numerical plasma physics, magnetohydrodynamics, dispersive wave equations
    • Multi-physics problems and astrophysical applications
    • Modeling and analysis of physical processes
    • High-performance computing (HPC) in Julia
    • Heterogeneous computing on CPUs and GPUs using OpenCL
