Ruth Partzsch, Speaker

Dr. Ruth Partzsch is working at Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich as leader of the research team “Advanced Time Integrators”. She is trained as a mathematical-technical software developer but studied and received her doctorate in Mathematics. In her research, she focuses on the development, implementation and application of parallel-in-time integration methods. In collaboration with the university of applied sciences, FH Aachen she holds mathematical lectures and is interested in promoting young talents. The topic of underrepresentation of women is particularly important to her. She strongly advocates equal opportunities and diversity.
