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 under Erin Carson at Charles University and, before that, under Daniel Kressner at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL).
My doctorate was jointly awarded in 2018 by Temple University and the Bergische Universität 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.
Sept 2023: The f(A)bulous Workshop was a success! Submissions to the special issue in ETNA are welcome until 21 January 2024. See the workshop website for more details.
Sept 2023: Towards a Benchmark Framework for Model Order Reduction in the Mathematical Research Data Initiative (MaRDI), co-authored with Peter Benner and Jens Saak, is now live on PAMM. Software can be found on Zenodo.
