Computational Science is a fruitful breeding ground, allowing for very many cross-fertilizations!
Computational Science is of vital importance to society. It enables computer simulation of processes, phenomena and systems that cannot be studied in real experiments.
A strong pull on Computational Science is the quest for ever-greater realism, increasing the importance of multi-scaledness and multi-disciplinarity as well as, recently, the inclusion of data. Computational Science is increasingly becoming part model-driven, par data-driven - a fruitful marriage between Computational Science and Data Science. Scientific Computing (Numerical Mathematics) is at the heart of Computational Science, which finds its genericity in the numerical algorithms commonly used across various disciplines. Its research foci and relevance stem from these separate disciplines.
Barry Koren received his PhD in aerospace engineering from TU Delft. AerPrior to his appointment at TU/e, he was full professor Numerical Analysis at Leiden University, full professor Computational Fluid Dynamics at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), and leader of the research group Modelling, Analysis and Simulation and member of the management team of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam. Barry is editor of the Journal of Computational Physics, member of national and international scientific committees and research programs, as well as scientific advisor at CWI. At the TU/e Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, he is currently dean and was vice-dean research for four years. He has authored and edited six books, five special journal issues, and over 150 scientific papers.
