Hartwig Anzt is a Helmholtz-Young-Investigator Group leader at the Steinbuch Centre for Computing at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He obtained his PhD in Mathematics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Afterwards, he joined Jack Dongarra's Innovative Computing Lab at the University of Tennessee in 2013 until he started his own research group in 2017. He still contributed to the Innovative Computing Lab as a Research Consultant. Hartwig Anzt has a strong background in numerical mathematics, specializes in iterative methods and preconditioning techniques for the next generation hardware architectures. His Helmholtz group on Fixed-point methods for numerics at Exascale (FiNE) is granted funding until 2022. Hartwig Anzt has a long track record of high-quality software development. He is author of the MAGMA-sparse open source software package and managing lead of the Ginkgo numerical linear algebra library. Hartwig Anzt is a co-PI of the PEEKS project and the xSDK project inside the software technology effort of the US Exascale Computing Project (ECP). He is also the technical PI of the multiprecision effort in the xSDK project, a coordinated effort aiming at integrating low-precision functionality into high-accuracy simulation codes.
