Malte Braack was born in Hamburg, Germany. He received his Diploma in mathematics in 1994 at the University of Hamburg, Germany. In 1998, he received the Ph.D. degree in mathematics from the University of Heidelberg, Germany. After a postdoc phase at INRIA, Sophia-Antipolis (France), and in Heidelberg, he finished the Habilitation degree in 2005. From 2006 to 2008, he was an Associate Professor of applied mathematics at the University of Kiel, Germany. Since 2008, he has been a Full Professor at the same institution. His scientific focus is on finite element methods for partial differential equations: mesh adaptivity, fluid mechanics, multigrid methods, error estimation, fast solvers, stabilized methods, optimization, and model adaptivity. He is a Principal Investigator of the Excellence Cluster Future Ocean and a member of the DFG priority programs on Optimization with Partial Differential Equations and Multiple Scales in Fluid Mechanics and Meteorology.
