Research Interests

I am interested in modelling and simulation of materials and manufacturing processes, ranging from solidification and diffusion bonding to metal forming and cold spraying, with a focus on microstructure development under dynamic or non-equilibrium conditions. 

I have been using the finite element method to simulate thermomechanical processes, as well as a combination of phase-field, cellular automata and lattice Boltzmann models to simulate microstructure development in thermal and electrochemical processes.
