Maicon Hieronymus is a Ph.D. student at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. He started his Ph.D. in 2019 in collaboration with the Waves to Weather project funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG). He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in computer science with an emphasis on experimental physics from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. During his bachelor and master thesis he worked at IceCube on sampling techniques with GPUs for non-analytic, not necessarily smooth functions. His current research interests are automatic differentiation of models in atmosphere physics and high performance computing.
