Group Leader: EMCL @ Heidelberg University

Heidelberg, Germany

Description: The Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab (EMCL), directed by Prof. Dr. Vincent Heuveline, is a research group at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR), Heidelberg University, Germany, dedicated to creating a stimulating and supportive environment for innovative research at the interface between applied mathematics and computer science. EMCL is particularly noted for its openness to multidisciplinary research in the field of medicine, engineering, and scientific computing. The group's research focus lies in gaining knowledge from extremely large and complex datasets through data-based modeling, data-mining, and numerical simulation. Reliability considerations with respect to these datasets are addressed via methods of uncertainty quantification. These fields require a decidedly interdisciplinary approach to mathematical modeling, numerical simulation, hardware-aware computing, and high-performance computing. Besides mathematical oncology, the group is part of various medical projects on newborn screening, clinical data management, radiogenomics, and cardiology.
