Academic Career and Research Areas
The research area of Prof. Zavadlav (b. 1987) lies in the development of efficient and predictive computational methods and models for application areas ranging from life sciences to engineering. To this end, she is working on novel multi-resolution techniques that combine different simulation methods within a single simulation and on development of new models with the aid of machine learning tools.
Prof. Zavadlav studied physics at the University of Ljubljana where she received her Ph.D. in 2005 while working at the National Institute of Chemistry in Slovenia. In 2016, she joined the Computational Science and Engineering Laboratory at ETH Zurich and was awarded the ETH Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2017. In 2019, she was appointed as Assistant Professor for Multiscale Modeling of Fluid Materials at TUM.
