Galvan, Boris

At the moment I am working in the development of a rock mechanics simulator together with a flow through porous media simulator to be applied to study of fluid induced earthquakes in enhance geothermal systems, fracking and reservoir modeling. This simulator is based on the new Graphical Processing Units (GPU) technology.  Its parallelization to distributed memory systems, computers clusters, is part of my current work.
