Dipl.-Ing. Andreas Buttinger-Kreuzhuber


Andreas Buttinger-Kreuzhuber is a researcher in the research group Integrated Simulations at the VRVis Research Center for Virtual Reality and Visualization and a PhD student at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) in the research group Research Center of Hydrology and Water Resources Management. In May 2016 he joined the Vienna Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems, his supervisor is Günter Blöschl.

He studied Technical Mathematics at the TU Wien with a focus on modelling and simulation of partial differential equations. In his diploma thesis he analyzed the flow through nanopores using a coupled system of equations for electrostatics, ion transport and fluid flow. He contributed to the START project 'PDE Models for Nanotechnology' for which he co-authored publications on the modelling and simulation of flow through nanopores.
