Research profile

Simon’s background is in (engineering) physics, and they received their MSc diploma from Karlstad University in Sweden early June 2019. Their thesis was concerned with morphology formation as a result of phase separation of ternary mixtures upon evaporation, where a discrete-time Monte Carlo approach was applied to a two-dimensional lattice. They joined TU/e as a PhD student during the middle of September 2019.

Their present research concerns free-form geometrical optics with scattering, which is a challenging and novel combination as one of the main approximations of traditional geometrical optics is precisely that the light does not scatter; it exclusively reflects and refracts. This research is part of a more ambitious effort carried out as a collaboration between several institutions and companies focused on furthering the field of non-imaging optics in the context of light homogeneity and isotropy to aid the design of the free-form scattering optical components of the future.
