    Research and Innovation projects

    Active and recent research areas in new technologies, computational mathematics and their applications

    All highlights are build from scratch with an aim to deliver state-of-the-art approaches using advanced numerical methods as a part of research effort in my group.

    Research in paradigm shifts in scientific computing using modern parallel programming paradigms and emerging many-core and heterogeneous architectures ranging from work desktops to the largest super-computing clusters in the world.
    Novel algorithms and high-performance computing for fast (possibly real-time) calculations to pave the way for novel marine and naval hydrodynamics calculations.
    Novel and efficient spectral (high-order) and adaptive algorithms for uncertainty quantification of problems with high dimensionality, data science, machine learning and stochastic simulations.
    Massively parallel and scalable algorithms such as multigrid and multi-level algorithms for scientific engineering applications, e.g. reservoir simulation and hydrodynamics.

    Novel application proof-of-concepts for engineering analysis, e.g. offshore engineering, computational fluid dynamics, room acoustics and vibro-acoustics.

    Research in efficient and robust high-order unstructured numerical methods and time-dependent models.

    Scientific Software Engineering

    Drivers of the research are scientific software for scientific investigation.

    Poster highlights of research

    Supervision in Research projects (selected and recent)

    Community service

    2010, Co-founder (with colleagues at Scientific Computing Section) of GPULAB with strong focus on Scientific GPU Computing, fundamental aspects of high-performance and heterogenous computing on modern many-core architectures and software development for proofs of concepts related to next-generation scientific applications using modern programming paradigms (CUDA/OpenCL) and tools. GPUlab was designated Nvidia CUDA Teaching Center May 2012 and Nvidia CUDA Research Center (PI: Allan P. Engsig-Karup) since November 2012.

    I am a member of the Scientific Council of Danish Center for Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (DCAMM).
