I am Stephanie Friedhoff, a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Wuppertal, Germany. My research interests are in the area of computational applied mathematics and scientific computation with a focus on the development of efficient numerical methods for the solution of partial differential equations. In particular, I am interested in developing optimal-scaling multigrid solvers for the linear systems that arise from the discretization of problems with evolutionary behavior. My research is focused on adding parallelism in time in such problems (parallel-in-time integration) as well as on the comparison of multigrid methods that allow space-time concurrency. As a member of the XBraid Parallel-in-Time Project Team I am actively involved in the development of the software XBraid, a non-intrusive approach for Parallel time integration with multigrid.

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, USA, in May 2014, my B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science, and my M.Sc. in Mathematics at the University of Wuppertal, Germany, in September 2007 and April 2010. From August 2014 until August 2015, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Scientific Computing Group at the KU Leuven - University of Leuven, Belgium.
