Portrait

Thomas Slawig studied Mathematics at the Technical University of Berlin. In 1998 he earned his doctorate on the topic of Optimal Control for Equations of Fluid Dynamics. From 1999 to 2000 he worked at the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK)  in the group Data & Computation. In 2005 Thomas Slawig completed his habilitation in Berlin and in 2007 he was offered a Professorship in Algorithmic Optimal Control – CO2 Uptake of the Ocean in the Institute for Information Technology at Kiel University.

Research questions

  • How can we improve methods for data assimilation and model calibration in marine research to improve the models themselves?
  • How can marine ecosystem and climate models be assessed and improved?
  • How can we deal with very complex and computationally expensive simulation models?
  • On what hardware will we run our models in ten or twenty years?
  • How can we combine the knowledge and experience of marine research, applied mathematics and computer science for the benefit of all three disciplines?
