Dr. Jack S. Hale is a Research Scientist (Level 2) in the Department of Engineering at the University of Luxembourg in the Legato Team, Track Lead of the Mathematical Modelling and Computational Sciences track within the Master in Mathematics, and a supervisor and member of the programme committee of the Doctoral Programme in Complex Systems Science.

In 2021 he was awarded the University of Luxembourg autorisation à diriger des recherches (ADR) allowing him to direct research projects and supervise PhD students. He is currently supervising three PhD candidates and one postdoctoral researcher on externally funded projects.

His research addresses a variety of problems in scientific computing and computational mechanics, with research in assimilation of satellite remote sensing data, numerical algorithms and analysis, automated finite element methods, model selection in hydrology and high-performance computing. Much of his work is inherently interdisciplinary, including collaborations with researchers in Geophysics, Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science.

He has also developed funded industrial collaborations as PI and Co-I with Goodyear Innovation Centre Luxembourg and Rafinex Sarl on data-centric modelling of viscoelastic flows and topology optimisation.

He has led the development of and is the instructor for four new courses within the Masters of Mathematics.

From 2013 to 2015 he was an Marie Curie Skłodowska Postdoctoral Fellow funded under the FNR AFR/Marie Curie Actions scheme. From 2009 to 2013 he was a PhD student at Imperial College London where he developed novel mixed numerical methods for thin structural mechanics problems. His thesis was awarded the UKACM Roger Owen Award for the best UK thesis for topics within ECCOMAS fields of interest and a finalist at the 2013 ECCOMAS PhD Awards.
