Wimmer Georg, Professor
Dr. Georg Wimmer received his Ph.D. from the Munich Technical University, Germany in Numerical Mathematics. Later he worked as a research assistant at the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Hamburg, Germany. His professional career started as a senior research and development engineer at Ansoft Corporation and Ansys Inc. in Pittsburgh, USA. In 2012 he was appointed professor of numerical mathematics and mathematics at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt in Germany. From 2015 until 2022 he worked for the company ElectromagneticWorks, headquartered in Montréal, Canada in various positions as key developer, manager of the German office and director of research. His research interests are computational electromagnetics, numerical mathematics and high performance computing. He has written around forty publications and is acting as a reviewer for the journal Transactions on Magnetics as well as Compumag, CEFC and ISEM conferences.
