About

Currently busy with: * managing the further development of the COOLFluiD platform, including: (1) massively parallel(GPU-enabled) plasma and radiation solvers for heterogeneous HPC, (2) physics-driven mesh r-adaption, (3) shock-fitting for unstructured grids, (4) multi-fluid/Maxwell solvers for solar and space weather modeling, (5) high-order methods for aerothermodynamics and plasma simulations * co-designing and implementing the ESA Virtual Space Weather Modeling Center
