  • 2013- : Research associate / PhD candidate, Department of Informatics, TU München
  • 2011-2013: M.Sc. Computational Science and Engineering (Official, FB), TU München
  • 2009-2010: Exchange student, École Polytechnique, France
  • 2006-2010: B.Sc. Engineering Physics, ITESM, Monterrey, Mexico

Research Interests

  • Fault tolerance in large HPC systems
  • Sparse grids (combination technique)
  • Low-rank tensor representations (Matrix Product States, Tensor Trains)
  • Fractional calculus and fractional differential equations
  • Random ordinary differential equations

Student Projects

I currently have open topics in the field of parallel solvers for high-dimensional PDEs (efficient communication schemes, detection of silent data corruption in PDE solvers, fault tolerance via MPI redundancy, error propagation in plasma simulations, testing the Sandia framework "GREMLIN", parallel implementation of iterative solvers). The topics vary in mathematical/programming complexity and can be adjusted to your skills. You can see a list of possible topics here.


  • Afshin Loni: High-dimensional PDE solvers in emulated exascale conditions (Master's thesis)
  • I currently have an open position for a research assistant in the field of parallel programming / HPC


  • Paul Sarbu: Fault-tolerant communication schemes for the Sparse Grid Combination Technique (Research Assistant)
  • Ionut-Gabriel Farcas: Efficient implementation of the Generalized Coefficient Problem using GLPK for the Fault Tolerant Combination Technique (Research Assistant)
