I have developed both particle-in-cell and plasma fluid codes for the simulation of electric discharges (non-thermal plasmas), see projects. I'm also active in the development of MPI-AMRVAC, a framework for (magneto)hydrodynamics simulations. From a computational point of view, my work has focused on topics such as:
This is an incomplete list of topics that I'd like to investigate. If you are interested in collaborating or doing a student project, feel free to get in touch (see contact).
After finishing secondary school in 2005, there were three topics that I wanted to study:
Thus far, I have mostly been busy with the latter two questions, with my primary research interests being computational science and computational physics. I like to study systems that have some intrinsic complexity, not coming from boundary conditions or input data.
