Elad Steinberg

I'm currently a postdoc at Columbia University working in the field of computational astrophysics with Prof. Brian Metzger. 

I am a co-author of the moving mesh code RICH which is publicly available. I developed and implemented a novel load balance scheme in RICH that minimizes MPI communications. I also identified and found a remedy for "The Volume Inconsistency Problem" that plagued moving mesh codes and prevented them from properly converging.

I'm interested in tidal disruption events, dynamics of asteroids and outbursts in white dwarfs.
