Dr. Ulf Schiller is a new faculty member of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson University. He studied Computer Science and Physics at the University of Bielefeld, Germany, and obtained his PhD from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research working on lattice Boltzmann simulations of complex fluids and soft matter. Following his PhD, Schiller was awarded a Fellowship in Computational Sciences from Volkswagen Stiftung. After postdoctoral stays at the University of Florida and Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, he joined the Centre for Computational Science at University College London, UK, where he maintains a visiting affiliation. Dr. Schiller’s research interests cover a range of topics in computational soft matter and bio-inspired materials. He is particularly interested in elucidating, by means of computer simulations, how complex multiscale phenomena give rise to macroscopic materials properties. Dr. Schiller has extensive experience in developing novel scale-bridging algorithms and state-of-the-art simulation techniques. He contributed the first parallel lattice Boltzmann implementation to the ESPResSo software package and is a regular lecturer at the CECAM sponsored ESPResSo summer schools. At Clemson, Dr. Schiller intends to leverage the high performance computing capabilities of the Palmetto cluster to aid the design of new materials through computational science.
