Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Bungartz’s (b. 1963) Chair researches the informatics of scientific computing. This covers the entire range of simulation pipeline topics – from modeling through numerical algorithms and their efficient implementation on parallel systems to HPC software and data analysis. On the applications side, his focus lies on computational fluid dynamics.

After studying mathematics, computer science and economics at TUM, he went on to complete his doctorate (1992) and lecturer qualification (1998). After that he took up the position of associate professor of mathematics in Augsburg and Chair of Computer Science in Stuttgart. He returned to TUM in 2004. Prof. Bungartz is a member of the board of the Leibniz Data Center and is an advisory board member of several HPC centers. He is spokesman of the elite Bavarian Graduate School of Computational Engineering and the Munich Center  of Advanced Computing. He is the director of the Ferienakademie, a joint program between TUM and the Universities of Erlangen and Stuttgart and is involved in the German National Academic Foundation.
