Priv.-Doz. Dr. Julia Kowalski has been included in the DFG Heisenberg Program

Priv.-Doz. Dr. Julia Kowalski has been included in the DFG Heisenberg Program.

Julia has been included into the DFG Heisenberg Program based on her project proposal 'Modern Computational Environmental Science and Engineering - Improving Simulation Predictivity by Integrating Process Models and Data'. The Heisenberg Program is directed at researchers who have already qualified for a permanent professorship via a habilitation, the Emmy Noether Program or a junior research group leader position. For a duration of five years, the program allows the grantee to prepare for a future academic leadership role, while continuing to work independently on a high profile research project and further enhancing scientific reputation at a chosen academic environment.

Congratulations Julia!

Prof. Karen Willcox, Ph.D. - Projection-based Model Reduction: Formulations for Scientific Machine Learning

Twice a year, the AICES fellows organize the prestigious Charlemagne Lecture, whose objective is to invite persons, who have achieved impressive accomplishments throughout their career and, in this sense, to get inspired by their scientific achievements.
 
As the 17th speaker, the AICES fellows invited Prof. Karen Willcox, Ph.D., Director of the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, the University of Texas at Austin, USA.
 
Professor Willcox gave a talk on "Projection-based Model Reduction: Formulations for Scientific Machine Learning“ on April 30, 2019 at 4:30 pm.
 
We were very pleased about her visit and we will be honoured to welcome Prof. Karen Willcox Ph.D. any time again.

CAMMP awarded Brigitte Gilles Prize

RWTH Aachen annually awards the Brigitte Gilles Prize, the first name of the women's representative of the University, Professor Brigitte Gilles. The aim is to create projects and measures of an innovative nature that contribute to the promotion of women.
 
CAMMP (Computational and Mathematical Modeling Program) was awarded the Brigitte Gilles Prize 2018 for its commitment to promoting young women in the category projects, initiatives and individuals. The prize was awarded during the event RWTHtransparent on April 5th 2019.
 

The aim of CAMMP is to arouse and encourage students' interest in MINT study programs. In "CAMMP Days" and "CAMMP Weeks", middle and high school students devote themselves to solving everyday problems, industry and research, using mathematical modeling and computer use. They are supervised by female students, doctoral candidates and scientists.
