Eike Mueller is a member of the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Eike’s research interests in Scientific Computing cover a range of interdisciplinary subjects, including applications in physics and computational fluid dynamics. His research has contributed to the development of a new bespoke multigrid algorithm for atmospheric forecast models, which has allowed the Met Office to make better and faster climate- and weather forecasts. Having been trained as a theoretical physicist, Eike recently initiated a research collaboration with experts in lattice field theory and multilevel Monte Carlo methods in Germany. As part of his IMI fellowship Eike will further pursue this project to develop new hierarchical sampling methods that overcome critical slowdown in statistical- and quantum field theories.
