We welcome Prof. Ivan Yotov from the University of Pittsburgh (USA) as our SFB 1313 guest at the Department of Hydromechanics and Modelling of Hydrosystems of the University of Stuttgart. During his stay from 8th April to 7th June 2019 he will work with us in the field of porous media.
Ivan Yotov is Professor in the Department of Mathematics at University of Pittsburgh. He served as Department Chair 2007-2017. His research interests are in numerical analysis of partial differential equations and large scale scientific computing with applications to flow in porous media, computational fluid dynamics, and biomedical problems. His recent work spans multiscale modeling of multiphysics systems of coupled flow and mechanics, advanced finite element and finite volume discretizations, scalable parallel solvers and preconditioners, stochastic modeling, uncertainty quantification, and parameter estimation.
Professor Yotov obtained his Ph.D. in Computational and Applied Mathematics from Rice University in 1996. He held a postdoctoral position at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin before joining University of Pittsburgh in 1998. He is an author of more than 90 scientific papers. He is Editor in Chief of Computational Geosciences and has served as Associate Editor of SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications, and The Modeling and Computation for Flow and Transport, and as Guest Editor for a special issue of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering. He has been awarded Simons Visiting Professorship to Oberwolfach, J.T. Oden Faculty Fellowship at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, University of Texas at Austin, and Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award, Oak Ridge Associated Universities.
