About Robert

Robert leads the division “Mathematics and Education” at JSC and is one of JSC's deputy directors. In his research, he focuses on the development, implementation and application of parallel-in-time integration methods. He works in particular on the development and analysis of high-order iterative time-stepping schemes as well as algorithm-based fault tolerance and is the lead developer of the pySDC code, a Python prototyping framework for the spectral deferred correction approach and its many flavors. Besides parallel numerical mathematics, Robert is also very much interested in research software engineering and leads a research team at JSC on this topic. He is the director of the Joint Laboratory for Extreme Scale Computing (JLESC), supports PhD students in Jülich and strongly advocates equal opportunities and diversity.
