Thomas joined the group in March 2009 and he is working on parallel computational methods for fluid-membrane interaction. Thomas has engineering degrees in civil engineering and computational mechanics from Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany, and obtained his PhD at Graz University of Technology, Austria. Among his previous research topics were the simulation of bone remodelling and the coupling of finite and boundary element methods for non-conforming interface discretizations.
