Research Overview

My scientific interest has been numerical modelling of multiphase non-Newtonian flow applied in (but not limited to) water managing and, more specifically, anaerobic digestion for wastewater treatment. After using and developing finite-volume Computational Fluid dynamics (CFD) models, I have focussed my attention to developing new models and methodologies for the Lattice-Boltzmann method, and i am now part of the OpenLB developer team. I am now investigating the possibility of linking CFD to artificial intelligence.
