Antonio Tejero-del-Caz

Antonio Tejero-del-Caz was born in Córdoba, Spain, on October 15th 1987. He received his PhD degree in Physics in June 2016, from the University of Córdoba (Spain). Antonio Tejero-del-Caz specialised in high-performance computing, GPGPU, and the development of CUDA enabled PIC algorithms for the study of sheaths in low pressure plasma and plasma-solid interaction. From September 2016 he is a postdoctoral researcher at Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear within Instituto Superior Técnico (Portugal) where he is working in the N-Plasmas Reactive: Modelling and Engineering (N-PRiME) group. His current research is focused in the modelling and simulation of low-temperature plasmas of interest for biological and environmental applications. He is the main developer of the LisbOn KInetics (LoKI) tool suit, a set of computational tools to obtain numerical solutions of the electron Boltzmann equation (LoKI-B) and its self-consistent coupling with a global model to study the plasma chemistry (LoKI-C).
