Amik St-Cyr

Senior researcher
Amik St-Cyr recently joined the Royal Dutch Shell company as a senior researcher in computation & modeling. Amik came to the industry from the NSF funded National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). His work consisted in the discovery of novel numerical methods for geophysical fluid flows with particular attention to their implementation on supercomputers. He has experience in a plethora of numerical methods for solving time-dependent PDEs. Particularly, he contributed to the highly scalable (250k cores +) DOE/NSF spectral-element dynamical engine embedded in the current CESM (Community Earth System Model). He holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Montreal (2002) where his focus was on shock capturing central-schemes for high-speed compressible fluids. He then joined, as a postdoc fellow, the CFD Laboratory at McGill University where he worked on the parallelization of several industrial grade fluid flow solvers as well as on parallel mesh adaptation and domain decomposition methods.
