Lukas Spies

Originally from Germany, I am currently a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. There I am part of the Scientific Computing Group in the Department of Computer Science. My research focus lies primarily on Schwarz-type setups for multilevel solvers, and also on halo exchanges on large heterogeneous systems.
