Scientific Career

Prof. Wall conducts research in the field of computational mechanics. The focus is on single field problems (e.g. structural and fluid mechanics) as well as complex coupled multi-field and multi-scale problems. The research expertise covers the entire cycle of novel approaches to modeling, the development of powerful numerical methods, the implementation in efficient software and application-oriented simulations on supercomputers. The methodological spectrum also extends to uncertainty quantification, machine learning and inverse problems. Applications include all areas of engineering and applied sciences, with a focus on biophysics and biomedicine.

A native of Salzburg, Austria, he studied at the University of Innsbruck. After a research stay at Princeton University, he earned his PhD at the University of Stuttgart. In 2003, he would be appointed head of the newly created Institute for Computational Mechanics at TUM. He was founding director of the Munich School of Engineering and currently serves as Rector of CISM (Udine/Italy), among other positions.
