Martin Werner Licht

PhD Candidate

[I have completed my PhD at the University of Oslo. I am now a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Diego. Please visit my personal website here.]

Research Interests:

I am broadly interested in Analysis and Computational Mathematics.

I focus on compatible and structure-preserving numerical methods for partial differential equations, and work on a dissertation on finite element differential forms. Those methods contribute to a more solid theoretical understanding of numerical methods, which I consider as the key element for future progress in computational PDE. I am convinced that this interplay of numerical, functional and global analysis is promotive for each of these fields.
