Prof. Dr.; Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS),
Armin Seyfried studied theoretical physics at the Bergische Universität Wuppertal. For his diploma and doctoral thesis, he focused on many-particle systems, high-energy physics and parallel computing. After his doctorate, he was responsible for the modeling and simulation of building evacuation in an engineering office. From 2004 to 2018 he works at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich, developing models and simulations for application in civil security and traffic planning. There he established a new research group for pedestrian and fire dynamics, which became the Institute for Advanced Simulation-7 in 2018. In addition, he is professor for computer simulations for fire protection and pedestrian traffic at the University of Wuppertal since 2010.
