Boris Bonev

Doctoral student










I have received my bachelor’s degrees in Aerospace Engineering and in Physics from the University of Stuttgart. During my master studies in Aerospace Engineering I have specialized in the field of numerical simulations. For my thesis I visited Prof. Jan S. Hesthaven at EPFL, where I have worked on numerical simulations of the shallow water equations using the discontinuous Galerkin method. In February 2017 I joined MCSS as doctoral student under the supervision of Prof. Hesthaven.
