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 as well as the French-German Doctoral College Sophisticated Numerical and Testing Approaches

My research interests are design, implementation and analysis of numerical methods and algorithms for computational fluid dynamics, solids, multiphysics and crack propagation problems in elasticity and poroelasticity. I am also interested in error estimation and adaptive methods such as local mesh adaptivity with a particular emphasis on goal-oriented techniques. Finally, I work occasionally on numerical algorithms for gradient-based optimization for coupled problems.
