Honorary Member

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael W. Gee

Michael W. Gee is professor for Mechanics & High Performance Computing at the Technische Universität München. His research interests are in methods development for complex, large scale and nonlinear multiphysics coupled problems that involve solid dynamics, fluid dynamics and convection - diffussion reaction equations and their interactions. Special focus is placed on the development of algorithms and efficient solution techniques suitable for massively parallel computing platforms.
