Computational and Mathematical Modeling, Optimization and Uncertainty Quantification for Renewable Energy.


About Me

After my studies of mathematics and computer science at RWTH Aachen University I did my Ph.D. thesis in the research group of Prof. Martin Frank at MathCCES institute. After a one year lasting PostDoc in the group of Prof. Michael Herty, I am now PostDoc at the Steinbuch Centre for Computing at KIT in Karlsruhe. Furthermore, I am working on an industry project in the research group of Prof. Erika Ábrahám at RWTH Aachen University. See my full Résumé below. My method-oriented research focuses on:

  1. Finite Volume Methods for Two-Phase Flow
  2. Modeling
  3. Optimization
  4. Uncertainty Quantification

These techniques are applied to several application areas. Furthermore, in interdisciplinary projects the group acts as a bridge to transfer advanced mathematical techniques to real-world problems. Examples include:

  1. Dynamic Control of Two-Phase Flow Through a Network of Solar Heated Tubes
  2. Optimal Heliostat Field Layouts for Solar Tower Power Plants
  3. Robust Placement of Wind Turbines in Offshore Wind Farms
  4. Optimized Routing of Data and Power Cables Within Wind Farms and Solar Fields
  5. Modeling and Simulation of Photovoltaic Cells

Detailed descriptions of selected Research Projects are given below.
