Biography

In 2007 Allan matriculated at the Technical University of Denmark as a student in Engineering Physics. After 5 years of study in Denmark, Italy, Singapore and USA, he graduated with Honors as Master of Science in Engineering. Upon graduation he received the Laurits Andersen scholarship with funding for a year as a student at the International Cultural Exchange School at Fudan University, China.

In September 2013, he joined the Computational Mathematics and Simulation Science group as a Doctoral assistant of Prof. Hesthaven.

When weather and time permits, Allan enjoys swimming, running and biking around the scenic greater Geneva area.
