Dr. Patrick Zulian, is a scientific collaborator in the group of Prof. Rolf Krause at the Euler institute (Università della Svizzera italiana, Lugano, Switzerland). His work ranges from domain decomposition methods to the development of software libraries for large-scale scientific computing. He has created several open-source libraries (e.g., utopia, par_moonolith, ...) and contributed to open-source projects (e.g., MFEM, LLNL).
In particular, he developed and implemented parallel methods for the variational transfer of discrete fields in support of multiphysics applications and contact problems; Nonconforming discretization methods for flow in fractured porous media and fluid-structure interaction; algorithms and software for solving constrained nonlinear systems of equations.
