Derek and Eos, attempting to fit within a square picture.

My current role. Lecturer in Simulation and Modelling.

I am currently a Lecturer in Simulation and Modelling at Brunel University London. I'm also an Emeritus Fellow for the EPSRC-funded 2020 Science Network, a Fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute, and a Visiting Lecturer at the Centre for Computational Science at University College London.

Brunel University


January 2018: The VECMA (Verified Exascale Computing for Multiscale Applications) Horizon 2020 project has received funding, and for Brunel we will hire two post docs to work on it. More on this soon...

November 2017: Derek became the father of Heloise Xuyi Groen, who was born on November 2nd 2017.

September 2017: We published our first journal paper on Simulating Refugee Movements in Nature Scientific Reports.

August 2017: The PiTflow project has officially kicked off.

July 2017: The ARCHER e-CSE grant for 12 person months of funding, by Derek Groen, Daniel Ruprecht and Rupert Nash on Accelerating simulations of cerebrovascular blood flow through parallelization in time (PiTflow), got accepted.

Mar 2017: PhD student Diana Suleimenova has secured a JISC travel grant to attend the SSI Collaborations Workshop in Leeds, and wrote a blog post about it.

Mar 2017: Our Science Hackathon projects received coverage in the CERN news.

Feb 2017: Brunel is a partner in the SHGVA Science Hackathon at IdeaSquare in CERN. Both Derek Groen and Diana Suleimenova will attend the event to share their expertise respectively on Science Hackathons and on Refugee Modelling.

Feb 2017: Derek's EPSRC First Grant application got rejected with a 6/6, a 4/6 and a 3/6. It is only fair to try and share important failures as well as successes.

Nov 2016: Science Hackathons receive coverage in the Swiss newspaper Le Temps.

Oct 2016: We now have become an official partner in the EU-funded ComPat project.

Oct 2016: The EU-funded CompBioMed Center of Excellence has started. We will be involved in supporting FabSim as an Associate Partner.

Sept 2016: Derek will be co-teaching Data Visualization, Service-Oriented Architectures and Digital Media & Games during the 2016/2017 academic year.

June 2016: Diana Suleimenova started as a PhD student. She will be investigating the data science aspects of refugee movements.
