Research Interests

My work is related to the interdisciplinary connections between the mathematical models derived from Kinetic Theory, the non-equilibrium statistical mechanics of Quantum and (Semi-)Classical Physics phenomena, and their different computational modeling techniques. Current work encompasses, for example, Entropy-stable Discontinuous Galerkin schemes for Boltzmann-Poisson models of collisional electronic transport along energy bands, inverse problems in Electrochemistry solved via Bayesian Estimation and Multi-Objective Optimization techniques, Uncertainty Quantification in the Boltzmann-Poisson system for semiconductors, among others. Thus, this work has potential implications for pure research in Quantum Mechanics phenomena such as electron transport, for example, as well as for applied research in the context of nanotechnology and Li-ion batteries, with the aid of Computational Science.
