Daniel Weber studied computer science and received his PhD from the Technische Universität Darmstadt in 2015. In his dissertation “Interactive Physically Based Simulation - Efficient Higher-Order Elements, Multigrid Approaches and Massively Parallel Data Structures” he developed novel methods for physically based simulation that significantly reduce the computation time and therefore allow much more details in interactive simulations.
Since 2008 he has been working as a researcher at Fraunhofer IGD in the department “Interactive Engineering Technologies”. His research interests are physically based simulation in the domains of structural mechanics and fluid dynamics and parallelization on multi-core and many-core architectures. He started leading the group “Interactive Simulation” in 2013 that additionally researches the topics “Novel data structures for volumetric modelling and simulation” and “Domain specific languages for parallel execution of simulation algorithms”.
Since 2014 he has been deputy head of the department “Interactive Engineering Technologies”.
