Engineering HDR Seminar Series 4_2010: Survival Skills for Scientific Writing in the Academic and Professional Environments

Dr. Mathias Reumann (online seminar, a.k.a. webinar)

Date: 2010-11-09
Time: 15:00 to 16:00
Venue: 5-4-22


Professional writing skills are essential in academia and industry. May it be for an article publication in a scientific journal, a grant application, or a project proposal, writing is part of a professional’s every-day activity. Unfortunately, the process of writing can be problem-prone, time-consuming and dissatisfactory.

About the Speaker

Dr. Matthias Reumann was born in Frankfurt/Main, Germany in 1978. He studied Electronics and received his Masters in Engineering in Electronics with the Tripartite Diploma in 2003 at the University of Southampton, UK. In February 2007, he received his PhD from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the Universität Karlstuhe (TH). Since June 2007, Dr. Reumann has worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Computational Biology Center, IBM TJ Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, USA. His primary research interests are clinical applications of cardiac models to improve diagnosis and therapy planning for which he received a Young Investigator Award in 2006 and 2007. His work was awarded with the Wolfgang Trautwein Research Award by the German Cardiac Society and the Award of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering of the Family Klee Foundation in 2008.

Dr. Reumann is currently working on integrating multi-scale, multi-physical cardiac models on IBM’s Blue Gene supercomputer to achieve fast simulation run times for highly detailed cardiac models which will leverage the models impact on clinical diagnosis and therapy. Dr. Reumann is a member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society and the German Society for Biomedical Engineering as well as German and European Society of Cardiology and the International Society of Electrocardiology.
