Anne Felden
Postdoctoral Scholar

I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group (ANAG) in the Computational Research Division of the Computing Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. My current research revolves around the AMR ice sheet model BISICLES, most specifically its subglacial hydrology sub-component SUHMO.


My research interests initially focused on numerical simulations involving reacting flows, but have now expanded towards development of numerical methods to tackle various PDE based problems. Before joining ANAG, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the CCSE group at LBNL, where I was involved in the development of numerical methods to integrate ODEs on both CPU and GPU. I was one of the main developer of the open-source PeleC (compressible) and PeleLM (Low Mach) direct numerical solvers. I obtained my Ph.D., conducted at CERFACS (Toulouse, France), from INP Toulouse in 2017. The main objective was to develop and implement reduced chemistries in a compressible LES code. The information provided enables, in particular, to study critical phenomena such as soot and pollutant formation.
