David Kauzlaric

Postdoc with External Senior Fellow Sauro Succi


David Kauzlaric got his diploma in microsystems engineering in 2003 at the University of Freiburg and his PhD in 2009. His PhD-thesis was on particle based simulation of MEMS/NEMS processes and components. From 2003 to 2010 he worked as a PhD-student and Post-Doc at Jan Korvink's chair for simulation of the Institute for Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), University of Freiburg on process simulation, dissipative particle dynamics, coarse-graining of carbon nanotubes and design of object-oriented particle based simulation software. Since April 2010 he is a Post-Doc working in the group of senior-fellow Sauro Succi at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) on molecular coarse-graining with projection operator techniques. In 2012 he spent six months in the group of Prof. Pep Español at the Departamento de Física Fundamental at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in Madrid.
His research interest is the simulation of micro- and nanosystems and processes with particle methods. He is especially interested in mesoscale simulations and molecular coarse-graining.
