I use and investigate large scale simulations in high-performance computing environments. In doing so, I look for generalized ways to make large scale simulations simpler, more relevant, more flexible and more efficient. I have a particular preference for multiscale or multi-model simulations, where effective combination of existing codes is the method of choice for addressing new science questions.
If you're interested in doing a PhD within my research group, you can contact me at Derek "dot" Groen "at" brunel.ac.uk.
We currently have four students doing FYP projects within our group.
