I am a permanent member of the Faculty of mathematics at KIT in Karlsruhe with own teaching. My research focuses on Fluid Dynamics and the modelling of flow.

You can find my published papers and a lot of other information on the platform Research Gate.
For German and English speakers my Podcast Modellansatz shows fascinating applications of mathematics. Outside KIT I am collaborating, e.g., with BAW, ptv-Group, Dassault Systèmes, and BOSCH.

I grew up in the GDR and got my education there. After the unification I got my PhD and my habilitation in the western part of Germany and worked at the universities in Paderborn, Bonn, Hannover, Dortmund, and Heidelberg. I have two (adult) children.

Bei genauem Hinsehen finden wir die Naturwissenschaft und besonders Mathematik überall in unserem Leben, vom Wasserhahn über die automatischen Temporegelungen an Autobahnen, in der Medizintechnik bis hin zum Mobiltelefon. Woran die Forscher, Absolventen und Lehrenden in Karlsruhe gerade tüfteln, erfahren wir hier aus erster Hand.
