Who am I

I am a research professor in Mathematical Engineering at the Department of Computer Science of K.U.Leuven. My main research interests are function approximation, the evaluation of oscillatory integrals and the simulation of oscillatory integral equations, with an emphasis on wave problems from acoustics and electromagnetics.

Before that I was a postdoctoral fellow of FWO-Flanders. From April until July 2009 I was a David Crighton Fellow at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of the University of Cambridge. In 2006 I completed a PhD, under the supervision of Prof. Stefan Vandewalle.

In 2009 I received a Leslie Fox Prize (in Warwick, UK) and a New Talent Award (SciCADE'09, Beijing) for my research on the Fourier extension problem. In 2008 I was awarded the SIAM Richard C. DiPrima prize at SIAM's annual meeting 2008 for my phd research on oscillatory integral equations.

I am an associate editor of the IMA Journal of Numerical Analysis.
