Lubos Brieda is President at Particle in Cell Consulting LLC, where he is focusing on developing simulation codes for analyzing electric propulsion devices and the space environment. He has authored a book on numerical plasma simulations in 2019. Since 2020, he is also working as a part-time lecturer at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he has developed a new course on scientific computing and is teaching computational plasma physics. He holds a PhD in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the George Washington University, and an MSc in Aerospace and Ocean Engineering from Virginia Tech.
Francesco Taccogna is a researcher at the Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (ISTP) of the National Research Council (CNR) since 2008, and since 2015 he has been associated with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). He is working on dynamics and kinetics in non-equilibrium rarefied gases and low temperature plasmas by particle models. His research activity is documented by about 100 ISI papers and more than 1600 citations. He has been invited to discuss his research at numerous international conferences and in various universities and national laboratories in Europe, USA, China and Japan.
