Office hours Mi 11-12 and by appointment only (please use e-mail).

From January 2005 until December 2011, I served as editor-in-chief for the SIAM J. Scientific Computing. I am also a member of the editorial boards of International Journal of Parallel and Emergent Distributed Systems, International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering (IJCSE), and of the newly published Elsevier Science Journal on Computational Science (JoCS) . I am also a member of the SIAM books committee.

Since January 2011 I am chairing the Zentralinstitut für Scientific Computing.

Since January 2012 I am director of the Indo-German Winter Academy.

From 2012 until 2014 I was appointed to be member of the Research Council of the Technical University Kaiserslautern. Since 2012 I am spokesperson of the GAMM Fachausschuss Computational Science and Engineering (CSE), and since 2013 I am member of the DFG commission for IT infrastructure .

I currently serve on the program committees of

From 2002-2005, I have been Associate Dean for the Faculty of Engineering Sciences.

Bavarian Graduate School in Computational Engineering

The Bavarian Graduate School in Computational Engineering is a master level program of excellence, taught in English, that has been selected for the Bavaria's Elite-Network Initiative and receives special funding from there. The degree awarded is a "Master of Science with Honours". This program offers special courses and intensive individual guidance for highly motivated and talented students.

This premium Master degree program is based on the existing International Master Program in Computational Engineering at Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and is conducted in collaboration with two related programs at Technische Universität München (CSE, COME). For more information on this new program see the information page and the (German) description of the program. The courses offered for the elite program can be found via the information system of the university UnivIS .

Starting in fall semester 2008, CE students can obtain a double Master's degree from two leading European universities:

  • FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, and
  • Kungl. Tekniska Högskolan, Stockholm, Sweden.
Additional information here.

The CE-course is supported within the European Program of Excellence Erasmus-Mundus as one of the partner programs of the Master Course Computer Simulations for Science and Engineering (COSSE).


  • An overview of the projects my group is working on, can be found at our research page .
  • My personal research page and current projects (including proposals for collaboration) is a bit outdated - please check also the group's pages.


Courses and lectures of the Simulation Group can be found on a separate page and through the information system of the university UnivIS .

Good Teaching is one of my priorities. Some student evaluations for the lectures:

  • Numerical Simulation of fluids (SS 2008), (WS 2012)
  • Simulation und Wissenschaftliches Rechnen (WS 2007) , (SS 2012) , (SS 2013) , (SS 2014)
  • Algoriths of Numerical Linearen Algebra
  • (WS 2012) , (WS 2013)
  • Computational Engineering (SS 2013) , (SS 2014)
  • (but only as pdf and only in German).
