Research interests

Current topics

  • Detection and reconstruction of inclusions in elastic bodies by means of monotonicity-based methods as well as their linearization and regularization.

My research focus is on wave equations, with a focus on the elastic case: from wave propagation to postprocessing to the inverse problem. On the one hand my goal is to develop and analyze numerical methods and on the other hand to implement them.

Further topics

  • Stable boundary integral formulation of the acoustic wave equation as a transmission problem with mixed boundary conditions.
  • Stable numerical coupling of interior and exterior problems for the elastic and thermoelastic wave equation (by use of finite elements and leapfrog as well as boundary elements and convolution quadrature) as well as convergence and error analysis.
  • Implementation and numerical experiments of FEM-BEM coupling and time discretizations for the elastodynamic wave equation.
  • Multiscale decomposition based on physically motivated wavelets for the Laplace, Helmholtz, d'Alembert and elastic wave equation with numerical experiments.
