Dr. Andreas AdelmannSenior Scientist, Paul Scherrer Institute
I obtained my Ph.D in 2002 from the Seminar of Applied Mathematics at ETH in Zurich. Already during my Ph.D work, a successful endeavor started; bridging computer science (CS), high performance computing (HPC), and computational particle accelerator physics. In recognition of this work, I received the first Luis W. Alvarez postdoctoral fellowship in computational science at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. From this time onwards I have been continuously enhancing simulation capabilities for precision particle accelerator modeling and applying them to challenging problems. This is a task that requires melding techniques from CS and HPC and resulted in a large parallel software framework OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) which is used around the world in existing and future accelerator projects. While doing so, I have established my own group at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) and built up a network of national and international research collaborations. I am lecturing the the ETH Zurich, Parallel Numerical Computing with P. Arbenz, Particle Accelerator Modeling 1 & 2, and Probability Theory and Statistics at the University of Applied Science in Zurich.
