01.11.2023 Today we welcome Dr. Cédric Travelletti to our group. All the best and happy beginnings! We we hope you'll like doing our mathy way of doing materials science.
19.09.2023 Today our group welcomes two master students, Bruno Ploumhans and Bonan Sun, who will stay with us for the upcoming autumn semester. We hope you will enjoy your time with us with some great insights into DFT and materials modelling.
01.09.2023 Niklas Schmitz joins our group as a PhD student. Welcome Niklas and we look forward to discussions and some great science over the next years.
25.07.2023 - 29.07.2023 Michael is part of the organising committee of JuliaCon 2023, the annual conference of the community of the Julia programming language. This year it finally resumes to an in-person conference, this time in Cambridge, United States. For the second time in a row Michael has taken the position as program co-chair. Additionally he will present, together with Paul Brehmer, on Surrogatising quantum spin systems using reduced order models. [Slides] [Recording]
27.06.2023 Michael co-organises the minisymposium Interdisciplinary Challenges in Multiscale Materials Modeling at the Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) conference in Davos, Switzerland. As part of the minisymposium he will present on Fostering Interdisciplinary Research in Materials Modelling by Composable Julia Software. [Slides]
05.06.2023 - 08.06.2023 Michael attends the Numerical Methods in Quantum Chemistry 2023 in Tromsø, Norway, where he is invited to give a talk titled Efficient response property calculations for density-functional theory. [Slides]
30.05.2023 - 02.06.2023 At the 93rd annual meeting of the German Association of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics (GAMM) in Dresden, Germany Michael gives a talk titled Accelerating mathematical developments in materials modelling by composable software as part of the section Modelling, analysis and simulation of molecular systems. [Slides]
24.05.2023 Our group hosts a seminar Julia for Materials Modelling. In the form of interactive Pluto notebooks Michael discusses the suitability of Julia for atomistic materials modelling and provides an overview of the current state of Julia tools in this field. [Lecture notes] [Recording]
08.05.2023 Michael gives a talk titled An interdisciplinary perspective on robust materials simulations at the Get to know your neighbors seminar series at the center for intelligent systems at EPFL. [Slides] [Recording]
