Bio & CV

I am a postdoc at the Bath Institute of Complex Systems (BICS). BICS has five themes. I am part of Theme D: Numerical methods for multi-scale problems. For the first part of my postdoc, I am working closely together with prof. Ivan Graham and dr. Robert Scheichl. For the second part of my postdoc, I am collaborating with prof. Chris Budd.

In February 2006 I obtained a PhD from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The subject of my thesis was Multigrid Methods for Time-Dependent Partial Differential Equations. As a PhD student I was part of the Scientific Computing Group of the Department of Computer Science where I was supervised by prof. Stefan Vandewalle.

From October 1999 until September 2000 I did an MSc in Machine Learning and Adaptive Computing at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol. Head of the course was prof. Larry Bull. I wrote a thesis entitled Modelling Two-Dimensional Sorting in Worker Ants under the supervision of prof. Ana Sendova-Franks.

I have an engineering degree in computer science from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. I specialised in numerical analysis (as opposed to programming or mechatronics, which where the other options).
