Most physical and biological systems involve material surfaces or interfaces which move and deform over time: from the flow of a fluid droplet to the growth of a biological organ.

To describe such systems, our group develops mathematical models for the complex interplay of fluid, elastic and reactive phases which move, deform and grow over time. We combine methods from mathematics, physics and high-performance computing to numerically simulate the behavior of such systems. Our current focus lies on biological structures such as cells and tissues where our methods help to understand fundamental principles beyond the reach of experimental observations.

We just developed the first #numerical method for wetting on #viscoelastic substrates and provide first #simulations of stick-slip motion and #cheerios effect between nearby droplets: http://bit.ly/32hnjfR

Now it is official; we move to #TUFreiberg. Sebastian Aland accepts W3 professorship in #numerical #analysis at @TUBergakademie from April 2021. Thank you @DresdenHtw for the great support in previous years. Collaboration will go on!

Marcel Mokbel, PhD Student in our lab, wins the young researcher award 2020 of HTW Dresden! Congratulation!!! #htwdresden #research #Nachwuchsforscherpreis #Campustag
