Carmen Gräßle received her diploma in mathematics at the University Konstanz in 2015. Her diploma thesis was supervised by Prof. Stefan Volkwein and was focused on POD based inexact SQP methods for semilinear optimal control problems.
Since 2015 she is a Phd student at the University Hamburg under supervision of Prof. Michael Hinze. Since October 2016, she is supported by the DFG SPP 1962 “Non-smooth and Complementarity-based Distributed Parameter Systems: Simulation and Hierarchical Optimization“. Within project 13 she works on the optimization of multi-phase flow using model order reduction techniques. Moreover, her research comprises the inclusion of adaptivity concepts in model order reduction with POD and PDE constrained optimization. She is a member of the Lothar Collatz School, the Siam student chapter and the GAMM Nachwuchsgruppe in Hamburg.
