Biography

Jannis Teunissen is a researcher in the Multiscale Dynamics group. He did a BSc in Physics & Astronomy and a master in Computational Science, both at the University of Amsterdam. His PhD research at CWI was on computational plasma physics, focusing on the simulation of electric discharges. After a postdoc at KU Leuven (Centre for mathematical Plasma Astrophysics) he returned to CWI.
