My current main focus is the machine code based automatic differentiation tool Derivgrind, which I have implemented using the dynamic binary instrumentation framework Valgrind. This novel approach allows to differentiate cross-language and partially closed-source computer programs with little manual intervention. Specifically, I am motivated by the goal to provide derivatives of realistic Monte-Carlo particle simulators like Geant4 for the detector optimization undertaking of the MODE collaboration.
Besides, I develop proton computed tomography software for the Bergen pCT/SIVERT project and assist in teaching the scientific computing lecture. Previously, I have worked on the modelling of porous materials in the computational fluid dynamics suite SU2.
