Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Benjamin Stamm holds the chair of Numerical Mathematics for High Performance Computing at the University of Stuttgart since August 2022.
Benjamin Stamm studied and received his PhD at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) from 2000 - 2008, after which he was a post-doc at Brown University (2008 - 2010) before holding a position as Charles B. Morrey Visiting Professor at UC Berkeley from 2010 - 2012. This was followed by a position as Maître de Conférences at Sorbonne Université (then called Université Pierre et Marie Curie) before being appointed Professor at RWTH Aachen University in 2016.
His main research interests are the numerics of partial differential equations, and in particular of eigenvalue problems, simulation methods at the atomistic scale, and model reduction. In 2017, he and two colleagues established the GAMM Expert Committee "Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Molecular Systems", which he also chairs.
In the coming winter semester, Prof. Stamm will give a special lecture on the numerics of eigenvalue problems and offer a main seminar on "Numerical Analysis and Simulation".
The department extends a warm welcome to Prof. Benjamin Stamm and wishes him a good start in Stuttgart.
