Field of Work
The group ‘Simulation of Large Systems’ focuses on challenges at the edge between numerical mathematics and computer sciences in order to enable large scale scientific computing applications on massively parallel systems. A special focus is on numerical software for complex simulation environments that allow to bring together different mathematical and software components to an large application involving, e.g., multiple physical effects such as flow, structural dynamics, chemical and biological processes, or simulation and optimization. Several members of Miriam Schulte’s group are core developers of the multi-physics coupling library preCICE. Applications range from classical fields such as fluid-structure (-acoustics) interactions over muscle and tumor simulation to coupling between subsurface flow and geothermal energy infrastructure planning.
Miriam Schulte, born 1974 in Munich, achieved her diploma in Mathematics with a minor in Economics at the Technical University of Munich. She did her doctoral studies (1997-2001) in Computer Science in the field of Scientific Computing on biofilm simulation. In 2010, she was awareded the Habilitation in Computer Science. 2010 until 2013 Miriam Schulte was member of the Institute for Advanced Study as a Carl-von-Linde-Junior Fellow. After acting as adeputy professur in Numerical Mathematics, she came to the Department of Computer Science at the University of Stuttgart as a full professor heading the group ‚Simulation of Large Systems‘.
