Golo Wimmer is a staff scientist at the Applied Mathematics and Plasma Physics Group (T-5). He received his PhD in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College London in 2020, within the Center for Doctoral Training for Mathematics of Planet Earth. In his thesis, he focused on structure preserving finite element methods for numerical weather prediction. Before his position as a staff scientist, Golo held a position as a postdoctoral research associate at T-5.
While at LANL, he has mainly been working on extending the methods developed during his thesis to magnetohydrodynamic models, with applications to the magnetosphere and magnetic confinement fusion.
