Current projects

  • Adaptive numerical methods for stochastic PDE: Adaptive spectral methods for problems with stochastic data.
    Joint projects with C. Gittelson, H. Matthies, Ch. Merdon, J. Neumann, Ch. Schwab, E. Zander.
  • Low-rank methods for Stochastic FEM: Efficient adaptive low-rank tensor solvers for SGFEM discretisations of stochastic PDE.
    Joint project with M. Pfeffer, R. Schneider.
  • Functional Bayesian inversion: Inverse problems with stochastically perturbed measurements based on low-rank tensor approximations.
    Joint project with M. Marschall, R. Schneider, E. Zander.
  • Topology and shape optimisation under uncertainties: MATHEON/ECMATH project SE13 concerned with the optimisation of topologies where the state PDE includes uncertain data and the constraints are probabilistic.
    Head of project together with D. Hömberg, R. Henrion, R. Schneider.
  • Coupled bulk-surface equations: Adaptive FEM for error control in the discretisation of coupled systems with components in the bulk and on the surface of a domain.
    Joint project with R. Müller.
  • Transport Processes in Biological Systems: Analysis and numerical simulation of intracellular signalling processes.
    Joint project with W. Giese, E. Klipp.
