Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, where my primary research focuses on two-phase flow models based on the coupled Navier-Stokes Cahn-Hilliard equations. Secondarily, I work on extending the variational multiscale paradigm to non-standard finite element formulations, such as discontinuous Galerkin formulations and Nitsche’s method. This framework reveals the inherent and implicit scale interaction present in these formulations, and provides a handle on the development of suitable subgrid-scale models.

For my work, I have been awarded the 31st Robert J. Melosh medal in 2020, and have been elected first place at the TU/e Best Postdoc Paper Award in 2022.

You may find my PhD dissertation here.
