When: Thursday, October 29th 12:00 pm
Where: ESB 2001
Snacks & Coffee will be provided.
Ardavan Osooki is offering to meet personally with interested students and researchers to discuss how to use his electromagnetics FDTD software for your specific simulations, or how to how to program an FDTD software from scratch, as he has done.
If you are interested in a one-on-one meeting with him, please email to Tanya Das firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability on Thursday, October 29th, and we will get back to you with a meeting time.
Bio: Ardavan Oskooi is the Founder and CEO of Simpetus, a San Francisco- startup offering an on-demand photonics simulation platform with a mission to propel computational simulations to the forefront of photonics R&D. Ardavan received his Sc.D. from MIT where he worked with Prof. Steven Johnson and John Joannopoulos (thesis: Computation & Design for Nanophotonics) to develop MEEP (ab-initio.mit.edu/meep). Ardavan has published 13 first-author articles in peer-reviewed journals and a book "Advances in FDTD Computational Electrodynamics: Photonics and Nanotechnology” with Prof. Allen Taflove of Northwestern University and Steven Johnson. He has a masters in Computation for Design and Optimization from MIT and completed his undergraduate studies, with honors, in Engineering Science at the University of Toronto. Prior to launching Simpetus, he worked with Prof. Susumu Noda at Kyoto University and Stephen Forrest at the University of Michigan on leveraging MEEP to push the frontier of optoelectronic device design
