About Me

Hello! I’m Pavan Laxmipathy, a computational materials scientist with over 6 years of experience in the field of materials modeling.

My research career is centered around the investigation of phase-field models aimed at addressing the role of diffusive-convective regime on solidification microstructures, such as grain boundary grooves, dendritic, tip splitting and poly-phase microstructures in binary alloys. Throughout my academic journey, the development of simulation code and post-processing tools to model and analyze microstructure evolution has been my primary area of research during my doctoral and post-doctoral studies. I completed my PhD in early 2021 at the Institute of Applied Materials - Computational Materials Science, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Britta Nestler, and later continued as a postdoctoral researcher until March 2022.

Since May 2022, I hold the position of a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, and I am a member of Prof. Dr. Peter Benner’s group, focused on Computational Methods in Systems and Control Theory. My work is dedicated to the advancement of computational workflows, effectively bridging the domains of numerical mathematics and materials science.
