To apply, consier to contact a potential supervisor
in advance. I would be happy to support a project in decision support
under uncertainties, e.g., with applications in epidemics. For
example, a project directed towards compute-intensive Bayesian methods
(perhaps strengthened by machine learning methods) and with
applications in dynamical systems for improved decision support and
situation awareness. Sounds interesting? Let me know and let us
I am interested in most aspects of Scientific Computing, in Numerical
Modeling and -Analys in particular, as well as to some extent in
High-Performance Computing. My main focus of applications are 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 Bayesian approaches
for compute intensive data-driven models in epidemics, including in
particular prediction, and multiscale modeling and
parameterization of living cells, where spatial stochasticity is an
important aspect of the modeling.
In case you are interested in doing a project work or a
MSc-thesis, please feel invited to contact me for further

In this line of research we are interested in the trade-off between
data on the one hand, and detailed modeling on the other hand. The
application focus is in epidemics and concerns modeling under
uncertainties and supporting risk-based decisions. Part of the work
will be done in SimInf.

Suggestions include high-performance software development, advanced
new modeling, and improving simulation efficiency and flexibility, as
well as machine learning and data mining techniques.
