Profile

Hans’ field of research is on the numerical solution of the Einstein field equations, and he works on questions that are best addressed in the fully non-linear regime of general relativity.

Hans’ work includes modelling heavy ion collisions at RHIC and the LHC using collisions of asymptotically anti de Sitter black holes, the first simulations of gravitational collapse beyond spherical symmetry in asymptotically anti de Sitter spacetimes, a study of the ultraspinning instability of Myers-Perry black holes in six dimensions beyond axisymmetry, an investigation of the mechanism behind a gravitational analogue for turbulence, and a new numerical scheme to solve the conformal field equations based on generalised harmonic evolution, with both astrophysical and gauge/gravity related applications.
