Join us for our final event in the webinar series: Fire and Ice, Earth and Oceans: Tools and Techniques for Researching Our Changing Climate with MATLAB.

In this session, you will hear from a researcher at UC San Diego and one of MathWorks’ own engineers discussing the role MATLAB can play in math modeling, cloud behavior and managing a large set of fire related data.

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in learning about how MATLAB is supporting climate change research in North America.

About the Presenters

Matthias Morzfeld has a German undergraduate degree (Diplom) from Technical University Darmstadt and a Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley, both in mechanical engineering. After graduating Berkeley in 2011, he spent four years at Berkeley's Department of Mathematics as a postdoc, where he collaborated daily with scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In 2015, Matthias moved to the Department of Mathematics at the University of Arizona as an Assistant Professor, where he taught courses on calculus, linear algebra, computation and simulation. In 2019, he moved to the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), UC San Diego. At SIO, he teaches courses on computation and simulation to non Earth scientists. Matthias' research has focused on the analysis and design of computational methods for problems in Earth science. He was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 2016.

Timothy Kyung is an Application Engineer supporting the Government and Department of Defense industry with technical focuses in deployment, interfacing with 3rd party software and parallelization. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a focus in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University.
