Raphaël Zanella

I received a PhD in fluid mechanics from Paris-Saclay / Paris-Sud University (France) in 2018. My thesis focused on the finite element approximation of the convection cooling of electromagnetic systems by magnetic fluids. After my PhD, I carried out a postdoctoral fellowship in the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Physics at Ecole Polytechnique (France) until summer 2020. I worked on the numerical modeling of multiphase mass transfer in buoyancy-driven flows, particularly in corium, using a diffuse-interface model and a spectral code. My work at PECOS center includes the study and the implementation of finite element methods applied to the HPC simulation of inductively coupled plasma torches. With an engineering and applied mathematics background, I like to develop mathematical models and scientific computing codes to simulate multi-physics problems involving fluid mechanics. In my free time, I enjoy sport practice, especially martial arts (judo) and soccer.
