Prof. Marek Behr obtained his Bachelor's and Ph.D. degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics form the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. After faculty appointments at the University of Minnesota and at Rice University in Houston, he was appointed in 2004 as a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and holder of the Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems at the RWTH Aachen University. Since 2006, he is the Scientific Director of the Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science, focusing on inverse problems in engineering and funded in the framework of the Excellence Initiative in Germany. Since 2008, he is also the co-President of the German Research School for Simulation Science, a joint venture of the RWTH Aachen and federal research center in Julich focusing on HPC in engineering and sciences. Behr advises or has advised 31 doctoral students, and has published over 55 refereed journal articles and a similar number of conference publications and book chapters. Behr is one of the main developers of the stabilized space-time finite element formulation for deforming-domain flow problems, which has been recently extended to unstructured space-time meshes. He is a long-time expert on parallel computation and large-scale flow simulations and on numerical methods for non-Newtonian fluids. He is a member of several advisory and editorial boards of international journals, and the member of the executive council of the German Association for Computational Mechanics and of the general council of the International Association for Computational Mechanics.
