Prof. Dr. Dominik L. Michels, M.Sc.
Computer Science & Mathematics

Dominik L. Michels' research comprises both fundamental and applied aspects on computational mathematics and physics addressing open research questions in algorithmics, computer algebra, symbolic-numeric methods, and mathematical modeling to solve practically relevant problems in scientific and visual computing. Prof. Michels joined the Computer Science faculty at Stanford University in fall 2014 heading the High Fidelity Algorithmics Group and since summer 2016 he holds faculty positions in Computer Science and Mathematics at KAUST where he heads the Computational Sciences Group within the Visual Computer Center. Previously, he was a Postdoc in Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Caltech. He studied Computer Science and Physics at University of Bonn and B-IT, from where he received a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Physics in 2011, a M.Sc. in Computer Science in 2013, and a Ph.D. in Mathematics and Natural Sciences on Stiff Cauchy Problems in Scientific Computing in early 2014. Prof. Michels was also affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for Informatics from 2014 to 2016. Moreover, he was a visiting scholar at several international institutions, among others at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Moscow, at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and at Harvard University. His studies and research were awarded and supported with various honors, for example with a German National Merit Foundation Scholarship, with a Johannes Kepler Foundation Scholarship awarded for excellent achievements in algorithmics and geometry, and with the AFCEA Award recognizing his outstanding contributions in the communications, electronics, intelligence, and information technology disciplines. In the non-academic context, he works as a professional consultant and research partner in the sections of high-technology and consumer goods.
