Dr. Kathryn Lund
Experienced mathematician and educator specializing in numerical linear algebra and scientific computing
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems (MPI-DCTS) in Magdeburg, Germany. I am a member of the Data, Infrastructure, Software & Computing (DISC) team, led by Jens Saak, which is under the umbrella of the Computational Methods in Systems and Control Theory (CSC) group, led by Peter Benner. My primary focus is TA2 (Scientific Computing) in the ambitious Mathematical Research Data Initiative (MaRDI).
Prior to moving to Magdeburg, I spent a year in Zürich learning German, tutoring, looking for work, and making friends. Before that, I worked as a postdoc with Erin Carson at Charles University and, before that, with Daniel Kressner at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL).
My doctorate was jointly awarded in 2018 by Temple University and the University of Wuppertal for my thesis A New Block Krylov Subspace Framework with Applications to Functions of Matrices Acting on Multiple Vectors. I was supervised by Daniel B. Szyld and Andreas Frommer.
Jan 2024: A report with Massimiliano Fasi, Stéphane Gaudreault, and Marcel Schweitzer from the f(A)bulous workshop is out: Challenges in computing matrix functions.
Dec 2023: Davide Palitta and I have a new pre-print out: Low-rank-modified Galerkin methods for the Lyapunov equation.
