Doctor Christian Kuschel

Health Modeller


In my undergraduate studies I focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning, especially in the field of the semantic web.

In my masters I specialised in modelling and numerical methods for engineering problems, such as e.g. signal processing, fluid dynamics and rigid body dynamics.

In my PhD, I extended my repertoire of expertise by mathematical optimisation and game theory by developing a large-scale agent-based smart grid and energy market model. To simulate an optimal smart grid, high-performance computation was necessary.
