Thomas Wick


I am a Professor for Scientific Computing at the Institute of Applied Mathematics (IfAM) of the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) in Germany. Furthermore, I am a member of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD and the French-German Doctoral College Sophisticated Numerical and Testing Approaches, the (accepted) international research training group IRTG 2657 Computational Mechanics Techniques in High Dimensions (CoMeTeNd) as well as the Peruvian Competence Center of Scientific Computing.

My research interests are design, implementation and analysis of numerical methods and algorithms for nonstationary, nonlinear, coupled PDE systems and variational inequalities within the fields for computational fluid dynamics, solid mechanics, fluid-structure interaction, thermoporoelasticity, and crack propagation problems in elasticity and poroelasticity. Therein I am specifically interested nonlinear solvers, a posteriori error estimation, adaptive methods such as local mesh adaptivity with a particular emphasis on goal-oriented techniques using adjoints, and parallel high performance computing. These concepts are furthermore employed in numerical optimization for optimal control, optimal design and parameter estimation.
