Ferran Brosa Planella
Teaching Responsibilities 2022/23:
- Term 1: PX912-15 Multiscale Modelling Methods & Applications IILink opens in a new window
- Term 2: MA3D1 Fluid Dynamics
My research interests are in the broad area of industrial and applied mathematics, with a particular interest in modelling of physical processes for sustainable development applications. I combine analytical techniques and numerical techniques to develop and study mathematical models, and use them to provide insight on real-life systems. and my motivation is to use these models as a tool to provide insight on real-life systems. From a mathematical point of view, I am interested in heat and mass transfer, continuum mechanics, moving boundary problems, and dynamical systems.
I understand research as a collaborative and interdisciplinary endeavour and enjoy working with experts from both academia and industry to bring together models and applications. I am also a strong supporter of open science and I am a core developer of PyBaMM, an open-source battery modelling software with state-of-the-art models and methods.
