    It is an ExaHyPE

    Tobias Weinzierl is an Assistant Professor in HPC at Durham University, UK.
    He holds a PhD and habilitation from Technische Universitat Munchen and has worked in scientific and managerial positions for the Munich Centre of 
    Advanced Computing and for collaborate large-scale projects together with the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.

    His research objective is to deliver state-of-the-art numerical algorithms and HPC to applications that today are too hard to solve because of their computational demands. To reduce the time-to-solution and thus to facilitate unprecedented accuracy, he focuses on the algorithm, data structure and software side, but also anticipates ideas from performance engineering, mathematics and the application domains.

    His research meanders around dynamically adaptive multiscale methods that interact with multigrid solvers for partial differential equations, particle systems, on-the-fly visualisation and dynamic load balancing. 
    All of this leads into open source software often accompanied by correctness proofs for proposed implementation ideas.
