Nowadays, full-wave electromagnetic simulation tools are widely used in antenna design, and their employment in the assessment of electronic designs with respect to ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) has increased significantly over the past years, owing to an exponential increase in the integration of functionality and the clock rates of new designs. However, several developers are still rather reserved about their engagement to embrace the ...
This post-doc project aims at developing advanced modeling tools to build accurate and efficient high-dimensional and stochastic macromodels in order to study the effects of design parameter variations and fabrication tolerances on the performances of modern electronic systems. This work will provide crucial novel design tools to conquer the design complexities of modern electronic products at a reduced time-to-market.
Accurate parameterized macromodels for efficient design Ghent University
The main objective of this project is the development of fully automated modeling and identification techniques to build platform-independent (SPICE, Verilog-A, VHDL-AMS compatible) physics-based parameterized compact macromodels for complex linear and nonlinear
microwave and RF systems. These parameterized compact macromodels will enable future designers to size and simulate their circuits under design in a time-efficient and ...

VisioFlow: Advanced macro-model generation based on micro-scale visualization experiments of two-phase flow through porous sedimentary rocks Ghent University
Many important geological questions are related to the understanding of fluid flow through the pores of geological materials (rocks, sediments and soils) on the field scale. Often, these questions involve the flow of two (or more) fluids which do not mix, in which case their behavior is driven by interfaces between the fluids at the microscopic scale of the pores. The current lack of understanding of the dynamics of these interfaces inside ...

Advanced 3D MOR-subgridding Ghent University
The goal of the project is to develop new, stable and accurate 3D subgridding techniques for the FDTD-method based on advanced model order reduction (MOR) techniques. This must allow to efficiently and accurately model complex high frequency structures and components.
The main objective of this project is the development of robust and stable rational modelling algorithms to build parametrized reduced order models for complex physical systems. The order and complexity of the scalable rational models are specifically tailored towards the application at hand. The approximation and/or interpolation models are based on sparse scatterded data,spread over the design space of interest, and the models are aimed at ...
Robuste techniques for multivariate surrogate modeling Ghent University
The computation of accurate and compact surrogate models, which represent the broadband input-output behavior of complex linear systems, has become a topic of intense research, mainly due to the increasing speed and decreasing size of electronic circuits. The objective of this research project is to develop algorithms which are able to generate guaranteed passive, rational, broadband circuit models, based on simulated time domein or frequency ...
