I am a scientist (PostDoc) working at NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) in Boulder/Colorado (USA)
and University of Colorado at Boulder.
Currently I am working on the efficient numerical realization of transport
schemes for atmospheric modeling and their coupling to spectral elements. A new dynamical core of CAM
(Community Atmosphere Model) is based on HOMME-SE (High-Order Method Modeling Environment - Spectral Elements).
We want to replace the tracer advection scheme of SE by a multi-tracer Semi-Lagrangian scheme.
Further research interests are cell-centered finite volume method, finite volume element method, boundary element method and the coupling of finite volume methods and boundary element method: (a priori analysis, posteriori error estimation, adaptivity, mesh refining, diffusion-convection-reaction problems, numerical verfication)
I hold a PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) in Mathematics from the University of Ulm (Ulm, Germany). The title of my PhD thesis is
