Michael Bader is Associate Professor at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and leads the research group Hardware-aware algorithms and software for HPC, which was jointly set up by TUM, LMU (initiated by the Geophysics Department) and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in 2011 as one of the measures accompanying the installation of the SuperMUC petascale machine. From 2009 to 2011, he was assistant professor (Juniorprofessor) at the SimTech Cluster of Excellence at University of Stuttgart, and he holds a PhD and Habilitation degree from TUM. Michael investigates algorithms for parallel adaptive mesh refinement (in the context of tsunami simulation and porous media flow) and parallelization and load balancing of large-scale earthquake simulation on unstructured adaptive meshes. A special focus is on performance engineering of simulation software for heterogeneous supercomputers.
