Open project proposals:
Computational cell population models: multiscale and multiphysics modeling

There are several openings for interesting and challenging projects within the software framework URDME. Suggestions include high-performance software development, advanced new modeling, and improving simulation efficiency and flexibility, as well as machine learning and data mining techniques. Precise suggestions for projects suitable to MSc/BSc-theses can be formulated upon request.
More details can be found here.

I am interested in Scientific Computing, in Numerical Analysis and -Modeling, and in High-Performance Computing. My main focus of applications has so far been in the Biosciences at broad, but I've also taken an interest in Engineering applications, and in Data-driven research. Current active research projects include fast event-based models for spatial chemical kinetics and epidemics, modeling of living cells, parallelism and efficiency in imaging with X-ray lasers, and auto-tuning in CPU/GPU implementations of adaptive fast multipole methods.

In case you are interested in doing a project work or a MSc-thesis, please feel invited to contact me for further discussions.

Please feel free to and use my software (Matlab/C/Mex) under a very liberal license. The software provided here includes a fairly wide range of subroutines useful in research, computations and for fun.

Please mail comments, suggestions, references, criticism. Please do not send support questions.
