Prof GABRIEL WITTUM specialises in computational fluid dynamics. He is working as Associate Professor in Department of Applied Mathematics and Computational Scienceg, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
Professor Wittum’s research focuses on a general approach to modelling and simulation of problems from empirical sciences, in particular using high performance computing (HPC). Particular areas of focus include: the development of advanced numerical methods for modelling and simulation, such as fast solvers like parallel adaptive multi-grid methods, allowing for application to complex realistic models; the development of corresponding simulation frameworks and tools; and the efficient use of top-level supercomputers for that purpose. These methods and tools are applied towards problem-solving in fields including computational fluid dynamics, environmental research, energy research, finance, neuroscience, pharmaceutical technology and beyond.
