Patricio

CV

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

Activities

Research

My research areas lie in numerical analysis, scientific computing and modeling, in particular, with focus on finite volume methods, semiconductor problems and meshfree methods.
Finite volume schemes
flux-error
  • Nonlinear advection-diffusion equations
  • Complete flux and Scharfetter-Gummel schemes for nonlinear diffusion
  • Physics preserving methods
Semiconductor simulation
semiconductor
  • Multidimensional van Roosbroeck system for non-Boltzmann statistics
  • Drift diffusion simulaton tool ddfermi
  • Applications such as bent nanowires, perovskites, spintronics and quantum wells
Meshfree methods
RBFs
  • Globally and compactly supported radial basis functions
  • Convergence and stability for multilevel methods
  • Anisotropic surface mesh improvement
