Research overview

I am currently working as part of the underworld (version 2) team at the university of Melbourne as a software developer and postdoctoral researcher. Underworld 2 is a python-friendly version of the Underworld geodynamics code which provides a programmable and flexible front end to all the functionality of the code running in a parallel HPC environment. Structurally the code is a python front end with a C++ middle layer and a highly efficent C foundation to do the heavy numerical lifting.

Underworld is an open-source, particle-in-cell finite element code tuned for large-scale geodynamics simulations. It is available for download from github and it's webpage is here.

More links, results and publications will be added here later...
