Patricio

CV

Apart from my research, I have worked as a freelance journalist for several German media in the past.

Grants and Activities

Research

My research areas lie in numerical analysis, scientific computing and modeling, in particular, focusing on the numerical solution of PDEs, semiconductor problems and meshfree methods.
Numerical solution of nonlinear PDEs
flux-error
  • Finite volume schemes for convection-dominated problems
  • Complete flux and Scharfetter-Gummel schemes for nonlinear diffusion
  • Physics preserving methods
Semiconductor simulation
semiconductor
  • Charge transport models
  • Drift diffusion simulation tool ddfermi
  • Applications such as bent nanowires, perovskites, spintronics and quantum wells
Meshfree methods
RBFs
  • RBF collocation and interpolation
  • Convergence and stability for multilevel methods
  • Anisotropic (surface) mesh improvement
