This is the website of Dr. Jan Hegemann.

I currently work as a Software Development Engineer at CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG 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 reseacher 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). Furthermore, I was project and sub-project leader in various research projects as well as experienced in the acquisition of third-party grants.

My Erdős number is ≤ 4.
