Featured projects




Johan Jansson is an Assistant Professor in Scientific Computing at KTH and leads the CFD research line at BCAM – Basque Center for Applied Mathematics. His areas of expertise include automated computational mathematical modelling based on adaptive finite element methods: mathematical methods, algorithms and massively parallel software implementations with applications in computational mechanics, realized in FEniCS/FEniCS-HPC which he was part of starting. Based on high-profile national and international funding for research projects (Severo Ochoa, EU H2020, ELKARTEK, PRACE, etc.) he has been able to build up a large joint research environment between KTH-BCAM and attract both post-docs and PhD students from top institutions in the field: Stanford, Politecnico di Milano, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Ecole Polytechnique and Texas A&M.

A particular focus in the Unicorn component of FEniCS-HPC is on turbulent flow and fluid-structure interaction, and applications in aerodynamics and biomechanics.
