Nivan and Mehrez have joined the OpenPNM Team, thanks to recent funding from CANARIE. Nivan is a software developer working on a graphical interface, with the aim to make using OpenPNM as easy as a few mouse clicks. Mehrez is a post-doctoral associate in charge of improving the backend performance of various algorithms and implementing multiphysics simulations. Welcome to the team guys!
The OpenPNM Team has recently received funding from the CANARIE agency. This significant amount of funding will pay for a software developer to build a GUI-frontend to the software, as well as a research associate to expand the back end capabilities to handle substantially larger networks. Our goal is to perform simulations on networks with billions of pores or more, and to easily handle multi-physics scenarios. The funding was received under the ‘software reuse’ program, which as the name suggests aims to support existing software platforms to become more user friendly and more widely applicable. This funding will last for 2 years and is an amazing opportunity for OpenPNM to continue to grow.
