Rony Keppens is Professor and Division Chair at the Centre for mathematical Plasma-Astrophysics, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. He headed numerical plasma dynamics teams at FOM-Institute for Plasma Physics 'Rijnhuizen' (now DIFFER) and Leuven and frequently lectures on computational methods in astrophysics. His career started at the National Centre for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, and the Kiepenheuer Institute for Solar Physics, Freiberg. He held a professorship at Utrecht University and a concurrent professorship at Nanjing University. His expertise ranges from solar to high energy astrophysics and includes parallel computing and grid-adaptivity.
Stefaan Poedts is Professor and Chair of the Department of Mathematics at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. He was a post-doctoral researcher at the Max Planck-Institut fur Plasmaphysik, Garching, a senior researcher at the FOM-Institute for plasma physics 'Rijnhuizen', and research associate at the Centre for mathematical Plasma-Astrophysics, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. His research interests include solar physics, space weather, thermonuclear fusion, MHD (in) stability, and multi-fluid modelling. He teaches basic math courses, and advanced courses on plasma physics of the Sun and numerical simulation.
