In January 2022, Dr. Andreas Kleefeld was appointed professor for “Numerical and statistical methods for simulation and data science” at FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences, within the department of Medical Engineering and Technomathematics. He will retain his position at JSC in accordance with the Jülich Model. The joint position will strengthen the existing collaboration between Forschungszentrum Jülich and FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences and attract students to work and perform computational research. Furthermore, Andreas now coordinates JSC's teaching activities for the Applied Mathematics and Informatics (AMI) master’s courses. In the upcoming summer semester, he will teach the master’s course "Special numerical and statistical methods".

Andreas joined JSC's Mathematics and Education division in 2016 to work on the numerical solution of partial differential equations with a strong focus on boundary integral equations arising in acoustic, electromagnetic, and elastic scattering problems and related inverse problems. His current research topics include the numerical solution of non-linear eigenvalue problems arising in the theory of inverse scattering problems as well as of stochastic partial differential equations. He regularly teaches courses such as Linear Algebra 1 and 2 as well as Stochastics within the dual study program MaTSE/AMI at FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences at Campus Jülich. Moreover, he is the group leader of the Algorithm, Tools, and Methods Lab (ATML) entitled "Numerical and statistical methods".

JSC wishes Andreas all the best for his new position.
