I am head of the Research Group Computational Medicine and the Numerical Mathematics department of the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). I am also a member of the DFG Research Center Matheon "Mathematics for key technologies".

Research Interests

My area of interest is scientific computing, involving numerical analysis, computer science, applications, and functional analysis. In particular I am occupied with

  • finite element methods for partial differential equations
  • applications in medicine
  • optimal control problems
  • multi-scale and multi-physics problems
  • function space oriented numerics
  • generic and object oriented implementations


Virtually all research related to PDEs is done using the finite element toolbox Kaskade 7, which is continuously extended to cover the needs of current research.
