Stefan Güttel is Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Manchester. His work focuses on computational mathematics, including numerical algorithms for large-scale linear algebra problems arising with differential equations and in data science. He is Associate Editor for the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing and Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis. He has been awarded the 2021 SIAM James H. Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing.
Data science relies on the availability of robust and fast parallel linear algebra techniques, be it within the optimisation routines for neural network training, in spectral clustering algorithms, or in the computation of centrality measures for complex networks. Stefan looks forward to working with Turing researchers to develop new algorithms for these purposes and to apply them in collaboration with practitioners in industry and public sectors.
