Philipp Öffner is working in the numerical analysis group at the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz. Prior to JGU, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University Zurich, at the Technical University of Brunswick and substituted a professorship in Mainz.
In his research, he focuses on the analysis and development of numerical methods for ordinary and partial differential equations, in particular for hyperbolic conservation/balance laws. He is interested in stability properties, the preservation of physical constraints and convergence properties of the schemes. He justifies always his theoretical results by numerical simulations.
