Paul Ellinghaus completed his Bachelor of Electronic Engineering, at the University of Pretoria, in 2008, whereafter he worked as a Research Engineer for the university spin-off company, INSiAVA. He completed his Master studies in Mathematical Engineering, within the Erasmus Mundus MathMods consortium, in L'Aquila (Italy) and Nice (France), in 2011. Thereafter, he joined the Process Integration group at IHP Microelectronics, in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, as a Research Assistant for 15 months. Since January 2013, he is at the Institute for Microelectronics, at TU Wien, supporting research efforts relating to the Wigner-Boltzmann equation.
The optimization and refinement of the signed particle method, as implemented in the open source Wigner Monte Carlo code, ViennaWD.
