Advice for students

I am happy to receive applications from students asking for internships, for thesis guidance and project assistant positions in scientific computing. All of my work involves computations and requires proficiency in working with computers and coding. Here is some advice on what you can do to improve your chances of success in scientific computing.

When you write to me, it is highly desirable if you can show me some proof for all/some of the above in terms of actual code, results and project reports. In your CV, mention all the courses, in person or online, that you have done in Physics, Applied Math, Numerical Methods, Scientific Computing, etc.

To work with me

The above advice is fairly general for anybody wanting to work in scientific computing, numerical solution of PDE, finite element methods, computational fluid dynamics, etc. If you want to work with me, it will help if you are able to satisfy some of the above requirements. In addition, you will have a better chance if you have worked with any of the following.
