MultiSim Expands Again – Adds another Researcher

Multisim Again
MultiSim, an EPSRC funded research project, carries on its growth by welcoming Dr Mario Giorgi to the team. This will only again cement MultiSim at the forefront of research into modelling complex and partially identified engineering problems. Dr Mario Giorgi is a post-doctoral research associate in the Department of Human Metabolism of the University of Sheffield since 2015. ...
