Michael Lindner

PhD student

Hi, my name is Michael Lindner. Currently, I am working on my PhD project on "Exploring network dynamics with machine learning". I am a member of the non-linear dynamics and control group at TU Berlin and of the complex energy networks (COEN) group at PIK.

  • Scientific machine learning (graph convolutional networks, neural differential equations)
  • Complex networks (power grids, brain models)
  • Stability and synchronization in dynamical systems
  • Scientific computing and open source software (Julia, especially NetworkDynamics.jl)

Clisciety - climate science, energy transition and society

The workshop collective clisciety aims at a constructive exchange between climate science and society. We develop educational workshops and talks on climate change and its consequences and establish contact with potential speakers for your event (in German and English).
