Prof. Dr. Folkmar Bornemann
Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Bornemann (b. 1967) researches numerics of multiscale problems. In particular, his interest lies in the interplay between efficient algorithms and the basic mathematical analysis of a problem. His methods and algorithms are used in medical technology, natural sciences and digital image processing. They are also used for computer-aided problem solving within the mathematical system.
After studying mathematics at Freie Universität Berlin, he completed his doctorate there in 1991. In Berlin, he was involved with the Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum (ZIB), initially as a research fellow helping to set up the “Numerics and Modeling” department, where he later took on a management role. Prof. Bornemann spent a year at New York University as a visiting scientist (1996/1997). In 1998, he was appointed to the Chair of Scientific Computing at TUM. From 2001 to 2004, Prof. Bornemann served on the executive committee of the German Mathematical Society. He was a member of the Mathematics Review Board of the German Research Foundation (DFG) from 2008 to 2011. In 2012, he was appointed to the DFG selection board for Collaborative Research Centers.
