Prof. Karen Veroy-Grepl received ERC Grant

The ERC aims to support the best and most creative scientists to identify and explore new opportunities and directions in any field of research, without thematic priorities. It particularly encourages research which cross disciplinary boundaries; address new and emerging fields; and introduce unconventional and innovative approaches.
Prof. Karen Veroy-Grepl Ph.D. (Graduate School AICES) has received a coveted Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC).ERC Consolidator grants are designed to support researchers at the stage of consolidating their own research team or programme. This grant scheme strengthens recently created independent and excellent research teams. 
Congratulations Karen!

IRTG Kick-off

On November 29, 2018 AICES had a successful IRTG kick-off. In May 2018 the German Research Foundation, DFG, has approved three proposals for research training groups from RWTH Aachen. The name of the international research training group is ''Modern Inverse Problems: From Geometry and Data to Models and Applications''. The international research training group consists of researchers from the Aachen Institute of Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) and the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at the University of Texas at Austin.

At the IRTG kick-off Prof. Honerkamp, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science, Natural Sciences and Prof. Bardow, Vice Dean in Charge of Structural of the Faculty for Mechanical Engineering hold the welcome remark. Then Prof. Marek Behr gave an IRTG introduction and the IRTG fellows introduced their research topics. After that there was a poster session.

We would like to thank all participants for the very successful day.


Advisory Board Meeting

On November 28, 2018 the AICES Graduate School held its biennial Advisory Board Meeting. The members Prof. David Bogle, Prof. Felix OttoProf. Antonio Huerta, were informed about recent developments, research results, and future plans through presentations of selected research group leaders as well as a poster presentation by the doctoral students of the AICES Graduate School. After a closed discussion, the Advisory Board subsequently presented ideas and suggestions towards shaping and ensuring the future of the Graduate School. 

We would like to thank all participants for the very successful day. 


AICES Junior Research Group Leader Florian Wellmann was appointed as University Professor

Florian Wellmann was appointed as University Professor in “Computational Geoscience and Reservoir Engineering” (CGRE) at RWTH Aachen University. Florian will continue his work on uncertainty quantification in subsurface models in this role and keep strong links to AICES with a participation in the IRTG "Modern Inverse Problems.
