This is the website of Dr. Jan Hegemann.

I currently work as a Senior Software Development Engineer (EMAG Low Frequency R&D Development Manager) at Dassault Systèmes (via acquisition of CST - Computer Simulation Technology) in Darmstadt, Germany.

I graduated from Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany, with a Ph.D. (Dr. rer. nat.) in (applied) mathematics in June 2013. I was a student of Prof. Martin Burger (WWU Münster), and Prof. Joseph Teran (University of California, Los Angeles, USA). My research focused on physics-based modeling and includes solids mechanics and fracture simulation as well as inverse problems and embedded interfaces.

After that I was a postdoctoral researcher and team leader at the Department of Energy-Management and Power System Operation at the University of Kassel. We also worked in close collaboration with the with the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES) - now Fraunhofer-Institut für Energiewirtschaft und Energiesystemtechnik (IEE). Furthermore, I was project and sub-project leader in various research projects as well as integrally involved in the acquisition of third-party grants.

My Erdős number is ≤ 4.
