For his Ph.D. thesis on “A posteriori error estimates and adaptive methods for convection dominated transport processes” he was awarded the Ferdinand-von-Lindemann Preis of the University of Freiburg. During his post-doctoral time, he held a position as postdoctoral research associate at the University of Freiburg. He followed short time research invitations to the Université de Provence, Marseille, France (May 2001), F.O.R.T.H. and University of Heraklion, Greece (Sept./Okt. 2002, and Sept. 2004), Mittag-Leffler Institute, Stockholm, Sweden (Sept. 2005) and had an appointment as Research Associate at CSCAMM, University of Maryland, USA from January to June 2003. Since April 2007 he is full professor for applied mathematics and numerical analysis of partial differential equations at the University of Muenster, Germany. He is main research fields are scientific visualization, numerical analysis of partial differential equations, model reduction for parametrized systems, and scientific computing. He is member of the Center for Nonlinear Science and the board for Competence for Computing in Science, and since 2008 director of the Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics at the University of Münster. He is an Associate Editor of SIAM Journal for Scientific Computing, the International Journal of Computing Science and Mathematics, and the International Journal on Finite Volumes.
