  • April 2019 - March 2020: EXIST Business Start-up Grant
  • January 2020: Office at the CODE_n innovation hub
  • April 2020 - March 2021: Young Innovators-Programme

The team

We are aerospace engineers from the University of Stuttgart and worked together during our PhDs on the development of PICLas. As a result, our combined expertise is in the rarefied gas dynamics, electromagnetic phenomena and numerical simulation techniques.

Paul Nizenkov
Paul is our expert in the software application in research & industry with experience in the simulation of reactive, high-enthalpy flows.
Asim Mirza
Asim is our expert in the numerical modelling of physical problems with experience in the simulation of space propulsion systems.
Stephen Copplestone
Stephen is our specialist for numerical methods and algorithms with experience in the simulation of electromagnetic phenomena.
