Peter Gangl finished his PhD in Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Ulrich Langer at Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria, in 2017. During his studies, he spent some time in Lund (Sweden), Berlin and Avignon (France). Currently, he is a university assistant at TU Graz in the group of Prof. Olaf Steinbach.
His research interests include shape and topology optimization, in particular for applications from electrical engineering, from both a theoretical and an application point of view. Moreover, he is interested in uncertainty quantification and advanced numerical discretization techniques, in particular for interface problems.
