short CV:
I am a researcher at the Vienna University of Technology and at the VRVis Research Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization. I graduated from the Faculty of Information Technology at Brno University of Technology and finished my PhD studies at the Vienna University of Technology. My PhD thesis presents a new numerical scheme for flood simulations and its efficient implementation on GPUs and validation on multiple analytic, laboratory and real-world cases. My current research topics involve large-scale flood simulations on GPUs.
