Academic Career and Research Areas

Professor Bader (b. 1971) works on hardware-aware algorithms in computational science and engineering and in high performance computing. His main focus is on the challenges imposed by the latest supercomputing platforms and the development of suitable efficient and scalable algorithms and software for simulation tasks in science and engineering. His research group is located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center.
Professor Bader studied computer science and earned his PhD in 2001 at TUM. He subsequently acted as a coordinator of the elite master’s program in computational engineering (as part of the Elite Network Bavaria) and of the Munich Center of Advanced Computing. From 2009 to 2011, before assuming the position of professor at TUM, he worked as an assistant professor at the SimTech Cluster of Excellence at the University of Stuttgart.
