Numerical relativity and relativistic astrophysics: solving astrophysical problems in dynamical geometry described by the equations of general relativity. Main focus on computational modeling of merging neutron stars and black hole accretion disks using adapted curvilinear multiblock grids.

Nucleosynthesis networks: numerical methods to accurately, efficiently and realistically simulate nuclear synthesis in cosmic explosions, in particular rapid neutron capture nucleosynthesis (r-process) with detailed self-consistent nuclear heating and subsequent radioactive decays.

Meshfree methods: hydrodynamics with particle methods, specifically coupling between particle hydrodynamics and a background mesh.

High-performance computing: remote steering of large-scale supercomputing simulations, runtime interfaces.
