Johan Hoffman is a professor of numerical analysis and principal investigator of the Computational Technology Laboratory. His main research interests are high performance scientific computing, computational mathematical modeling with differential equations and adaptive finite element methods, uncertainty quantification and data assimilation, with focus on the development of simulation methods for turbulent flow and fluid-structure interaction. He is co-founder of the FEniCS open source software project, with the DOLFIN and Unicorn tools for simulation of multiple coupled processes (multiphysics) on a range of scales in space and time (multiscale). Target applications of the technology include the development of new energy efficient vehicles, new ocean based renewable energy, and new tools for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. 


He is on the editorial board of the SIAM Computational Science and Engineering book series, the management committee of the Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET) Cost Action, the executive board of the Swedish Network for Mathematics in Industry, and since 2014 he is an External Scientific Member of the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics.

In 2015 he received an European Research Council (ERC) Proof of Concept Grant, he was selected for a Research Fellowship of the Swedish Research Council (VR) in 2010, in 2008 he was awarded an ERC Starting Grant, and an Individual Grant for the Advancement of Research Leaders (Framtidens Forskningsledare) by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF). He is the recipient of a Leslie Fox Prize in numerical analysis in 2005, and a Bill Morton Prize on computational fluid dynamics in 2001.
