“We are very pleased to partner with Darrin Stephens and Wikki Australia to support our customers in Australia and New Zealand and to continue our growth there,” said Dr. Rick Matus, vice president of sales and marketing at Pointwise. “With more than 14 years engineering experience, Darrin is a champion of high quality innovation in the field of computational continuum mechanics (CCM). His focus on technical excellence and integrity are similar to our approach to business, so I feel he will represent us well.”

Dr. Stephens has an extensive background in modeling a range of complex reacting multi-phase flows and led the development of CFD models for a number of industrial unit processes allowing re-design and optimization, improving throughput and efficiencies. He founded Wikki Australia to support new and current users in the field of computational continuum mechanics by providing development, training and support and expanding the use of OpenFOAM® in the academic and industrial communities.

Dr. Stephens’ professional interests include optimization and optimization algorithms, population balance modeling, coupled solvers and the development of next-generation hybrid and multi-physics models. He earned his mechanical engineering B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees from James Cook University in Townsville, Australia.
