About

My name is Tianbai. I know very little about anything, while I’m working on physics, programming and fine arts. I create pieces which solve the problems there. Often the problems are themselves caused by other pieces, which were also written by me. I feel like I’m a pure oriental from bones.

I’m currently a research associate at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. In may daily work, I play with applied mathematics, with a special focus on fluid mechanics. I teach courses and supervise students on kinetic theory and high-performance computing. Before I came to Karlsruhe, I was a Ph.D. student at Peking University and a research assistant at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. You can find a full list of my research outcome here. I’m also reachable on Google Scholar and ResearchGate.

Some skills that I’m interested and probably have mastered:

  • Julia/Python: ★★★★★
  • C/C++/Fortran: ★★★★
  • MPI/OpenMP/CUDA: ★★★★

I’m an enthusiast of Debussy. Sometimes I do photography. I benefited a lot from the work of Hiroshi Sugimoto and Yoshihiko Ueda.
