I am interested in Scientific Computing, in Numerical Analysis and
-Modeling, and in High-Performance Computing. My main focus of
applications has so far been in the Biosciences at broad, but I've
also taken an interest in Engineering applications, and in Data-driven
research. Current active research projects include fast event-based
models for spatial chemical kinetics and epidemics, modeling of living
cells, parallelism and efficiency in imaging with X-ray lasers, and
auto-tuning in CPU/GPU implementations of adaptive fast multipole
