Multiscale Approach in Science and Engineering

Speaker: Dr. Alexe Bojovschi

Date: 14:00 – 15:00,  April 20, 2012

Location: 212-E3 meeting room, VNU University of Engineering and Technology – 144 Xuan Thuy road, Cau Giay district, Hanoi


The development of new technologies relies on understanding of underlying physics and chemistry that characterize the systems of interest. The advances in computing power allow implementing theoretical insights into computational codes that can explore parallel or grid resources. These are used as predicting and guiding tools for efficient design of new technologies. This presentation will touch on some aspects of the use of multistage approach which include an electronic, atomic and grid level approaches to reveal intricate phenomena. Theoretical, computational, experimental and the product development steps will be addressed. The focus of the presentation will be on using a multiscale approach to developing integrated electromagnetic sensing systems for telecommunication and pre-fault detection in the power system.


Dr. Alexe Bojovschi is currently a research scientist at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. Before that he was a research scientist with the Victoria Partnership for Advanced Computing. His research interest is in multiscale analysis of novel materials and the development of new methods and technologies in science and engineering with a focus on electromagnetic applications.

He holds a PhD degree in computer science from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, a Master by Research in Medical Physics Biophysics from Aston University, UK and Bachelors of Physics and Medical Physics from Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, Romania.
