Timo Koch

University of Oslo

Timo is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellow (Scientia fellows II) at the Department of Mathematics, University of Oslo and a guest researcher at the Simula Research Laboratory, Oslo. His research primarily centers around flow and transport phenomena in the brain and porous media at large, with a strong focus on developing computational methods and advancing numerical research software.

He earned his PhD from the University of Stuttgart (Civil and Environmental Engineering and SRC Simulation Technology). As scientific employee in Stuttgart, he designed and implemented best practices and techniques for integration and system testing in the context of research software. This initiative was a key aspect of a 3-year project titled "Quality assurance in numerical software frameworks". As a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Stuttgart and, from 2020 onwards, at the University Oslo, he played a significant role in designing research software development workflows within the project "Sustainable infrastructure for the improved usability and archivability of research software" (funded by the [DFG]).

He is an open-source enthusiast, passionate research code developer (mainly C++ and Python), lead developer for the open-source research software framework [DuMux], and a member of the core developer team of the Distributed Unified Numeric Environment (DUNE).
