Welcome to the Modelics Lab!

Modelics is a scientific laboratory dedicated to the computational modeling of engineering and living complex systems. Modelics is led by Prof. Piero Triverio at the University of Toronto. Learn more about our research, teaching, facilities and open positions for graduate studies (MASc, PhD), undergraduate projects and postdoctoral research.


Research/Computational Electromagnetism

Electromagnetic phenomena play a critical role in many technological products. We develop efficient algorithms to solve Maxwell's equations in complex geometries. Applications: design of 3D integrated circuits, metasurface antennas, metamaterials, and quantum computing devices.

Research/Computational Fluid Dynamics for Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death. We create advanced computational models of the human cardiovascular system to better understand the root causes of the disease, and devise innovative treatments. Our algorithms are applied to coronary artery disease.

Research/Power Systems

Faults and lightning phenomena can threaten the distribution of energy to our cities, causing large blackouts. We develop better models and simulation techniques to help power companies predict such events, and design reliable power networks. Check out MoM-SO, our state-of-the-art method for power cable modeling!
