Georg Reuber combines geodynamics and mathematical inverse modeling in a collaboration between Boris Kaus and Martin Hancke-Bourgeois.
Oskar Kottwitz works with Boris Kaus on fluid flow in fractured and porous rocks, for which he applies different mathematical concepts to model flow at multiple scales.
Lucas Grulich uses a combination of techniques in statistical data analysis (e.g. PCA and neural networks) for the development of a hybrid method for classification of ice crystals in clouds from shadow images. He is currently working with Peter Spichtinger and Andreas Hildebrandt.
