Our research focus is in Computational Electromagnetics, the scientific discipline that seeks the development of accurate and efficient Maxwell's equations solvers. Our work is at the interface between electrical engineering, advanced computing, and applied mathematics and it focuses on developing fast and efficient solvers to characterize the electromagnetic interactions, radiation, and scattering of large, multiscale, and complex objects. Computational Electromagnetics is the underpinning of a plethora of electrical, electronic, optical, wireless, geophysical sensing, and biomedical applications. Because electromagnetic theory has strong predictive power, EM simulators play a dominant role in the advancement of today's physics and engineering science.
Our investigations, which has been funded by several agencies, research centers, and companies in United States and Europe, have originated several electromagnetic solvers and numerical techniques that have been successfully applied to the design and the electromagnetic characterization of on-chip and on-package interconnects, microwave circuits, metamaterials, computer motherboards and devices, and broadband plasma facing antennas.
Our most recently developed computational tools have also found very promising applications in neuroimaging for the development of next-generation high-resolutions electroencephalographies for the diagnostics of focal epilepsy.
