My PhD in a Nutshell Part I: Motivation

In this post I'll introduce one open research question in computational mechanics as well as one research direction that tries to resolve the problem. All figures are produced by a small Julia code that resides inside a Pluto.jl notebook. The link to the notebook file can be found here or at the very bottom of this post. My PhD Topic is a research project of the Chair of Mechanics - Continuum Mechanics, Ruhr-University Bochum in collaboration with Institute of Mathematics, University of Augsburg under the hood of the SPP 2256.

How To: Set Up a Pluto.jl Server for Teaching Purposes

I want to share what my colleague Dennis Ogiermann and me learnt while setting up a server that I’m going to use for a teaching adventure with Julia. I’ll teach exercises in the course “Basics of FEM” for mechanical engineers. The problems The mechanical engineering students have no or little experience with programming (and very likely no experience with a terminal) There is no time to teach them in depth programming, terminal handling, etc.

GSP Juelich

So, I was selected for the GSP in Juelich, therefore I'll be in Juelich for 2 months and enjoying all the benefits of the JSC (including their clusters, e.g. Juwels, Jureca, ...). The first two weeks were dedicated to intensive courses about GPU Programming with CUDA, OpenACC and HIP. In the second week the course covered MPI and OpenMP. On the last day (today), we parallelized a n-body-simulation, which looks like this: So, what happens here?

Hello There

Hey fella, small website about my science and photography stuff. In case you’re looking for information about my working experiences, please check out the about section. Otherwise, feel free to contact me for coding/engineering or photography related projects. Also, catch a glimpse of the photo gallery in the photos section.
