Viktoria Pauw


Viktoria Pauw is part of the leading team of Environmental Computing (ENV) Team at Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ, part of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities). She studied physics (major) and Computer Science (minor) and LMU in Munich. In 2016, she joined LRZ working in System Monitoring and Data Analysis. Her interests are focused on the interface of IT and domain science, particularly physics and environmental topics and the variety of methods and technologies that can enable scientists to follow their curiosities and broaden the possibilities of research in the 21st century. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree in computational physics at LMU in the field of PIC simulations.
