|Marlis Hochbruck, born in 1964 in Germany, received her diploma degree in Technomathematics in 1989 and graduated in 1992 at the University of Karlsruhe. Her PhD studies included a research stay at the NASA Ames Research Center in California.afterwards, she held postdoctoral positions at ETH Zürich, University of Würzburg, and University of Tübingen, where she completed her habilitation in 1997. In the winter semester 1997/98 she held a substitute professorship at University of Kaiserslautern. In 1998 she became a full professor for applied mathematics at Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf and in 2010 she moved to her current affiliation at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) as a full professor of numerical analysis.Her research interests lie in various fields of numerical analysis, reaching from Krylov subspace methods for linear systems and matrix functions to the construction, analysis, and efficient implementation of time integrators for partial differential equations. Most recently, the focus was on time integration of wave type problems. Marlis Hochbruck is a member of several committees of the German Research Foundation (DFG), currently as one of its vice presidents. At KIT, she was the speaker of the DFG Research Training Group 1294 "Analysis, simulation and design of nanotechnology processes" from 2011-2015 and is now the speaker of the DFG Collaborative Research Center 1173 "Wave phenomena: analysis and numerics".
