Welcome! My name is Quirin and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems focusing on model order reduction and surrogate modeling techniques for complex dynamical systems.
I studied civil engineering (B.Sc.) and computational mechanics (M.Sc.) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) from 2010 until 2017. Following, I worked as a research assistant at the Chair of Structural Mechanics at TUM and I received my PhD in 2022. Since 2021 I have been a member of the Computational Methods in Systems and Control Theory group at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems.
My main research interests are robust and efficient model order reduction strategies and I am decicated to making these methods applicable to a wide range of different problem classes. In particular, I am interested in methods preserving important characteristics of the original dynamical system. I am also working on data-driven methods and am investigating strategies how to implement them in existing engineering design worfklows. I believe in open data and publish the software and datasets for my scientific work whenever possible.
