Numerical modelling of particulate flows with special emphasis on multi-scale model synthesis. This involves (i) embedded co-simulations and sub-grid models, (ii) hybrid Eulerian and Lagrangian simulations as well as (iii) recurrence models for efficient time extrapolation of full CFD simulations. The outcome of his research group has been disseminated by open-source codes (www.cfdem.com, www.liggghts.com) and by to date more than 150 publications in scientific journals and refereed conference proceedings.
