Short CV

Prof. Dr. Nicolas R. Gauger received his Master in Mathematics (Dipl.-Math.) from University of Hannover in 1998, and his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics (Dr.rer.nat.) from TU Braunschweig in 2003. From 1998 to 2010 he was Research Scientist in the field of Numerical Methods for Aerospace Science at German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Braunschweig. Furthermore, he was appointed as Assistant Professor (Jun.-Prof.) for Applied Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics of the Humboldt University Berlin from 2005 to 2010. In Addition, he was Member of the DFG Research Center MATHEON (Mathematics for Key Technologies) in Berlin from 2006 to 2010. Since October 2010 he is now Professor for Computational Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics and the Center for Computational Engineering Science (CCES) at RWTH Aachen University. Furthermore, he is Principal Investigator at the Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES), which is a Graduate School funded by the German Excellence Initiative.

His research areas are: Nonlinear Optimization, Numerical Optimization, Optimization and Control with PDEs, Aerodynamic Shape Optimization in Multidisciplinary Design Context, Optimal Flow Control, Partial Differential Equations, Adjoint State Equations, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA), and Algorithmic Differentiation.

Prof. Gauger has published more than 70 scientific papers.

Furthermore, he is member of the Managing Board and the Scientific Programme Committee of ERCOFTAC (European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion) as well as Coordinator of the ERCOFTAC Pilot Centre Germany North and Member of the Steering Committee of the ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group on Design Optimization.
