About the Project

Tracking, modelling, numerical simulation and the control of dynamic interfaces between two or more domains still pose significant challenge to researchers in a variety of engineering, physical and biological fields including material science (crystal growth, etching, deposition), fluid mechanics (multiphase flows), atmospheric sciences, combustion, computer vision, etc. The research projects available in this area focus on multiphase segmentation and tracking problems, identification of models of interface evolution from experimental data, development of advanced numerical simulation methods and optimal control problems.

Funding Notes

This is a self-funded research project.
