January 2015 - June 2019 | Sittard (The Netherlands)

The company develops high-fidelity operator training simulators for the chemical industry. I acted like a bridge between the software department and the projects department.

Main R&D activities:
▪ Development of computational methods for the initialization of high index Differential Algebraic Equations (causalization algorithm, tearing variables treatment, solvability checking, non-linear solver, index reduction algorithm, constrain method, matching algorithms, state variable selection and under-determined/over-determined/determined equation system treatment).
▪ Development of auto-tuning tool based on optimization algorithms.
▪ Development of a new thermo-fluid and chemical model library.
