Dr. Matthias Reumann

Research Staff Member, Systems Biology, IBM Research Zurich

Dr. Matthias Reumann is Research Staff Member at the IBM Research - Zurich Laboratory. His research focusses on  focuses on translational research in life science and medicine applying his expertise in supercomputing to push the boundaries of current modelling and analytics approaches.
He studied Electronics at the University of Southampton, UK, University of Karlsruhe (TH), Germany and ESIEE, France and holds a PhD in Electronics and Information Technology from the University of Karlsruhe (TH) (2007). He holds an honorary Senior Fellow position in the Department for Computer Science and Software Engineering at the University of Melbourne.
Dr. Reumann joined IBM in 2007 and worked in the Computational Biology Center at the IBM TJ Watson Research Center in New York, USA, where he implemented computer models of the electrophysiology of the heart for the IBM Blue Gene supercomputer achieving previously unsurpassed scalability leading to the Gordon Bell Prize 2012 finalist nomination.
In June 2010, he has moved to Melbourne, Australia, to apply his knowledge in supercomputing to the field of life sciences extending his supercomputing expertise to the field of genomics. Since December 2013, Dr. Reumann is working for the IBM Research - Zurich Laboratory in the area of Systems Biology harnessing HPC.
Dr. Reumann is Senior Member of IEEE and Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine. In his spare time he enjoys literature and traveling but even more so cooking and spending time with his family and friends.
