Hani Francisco works on computational models in lightning physics. One of the goals of his research is to develop mesoscale models for the heads and channels of streamer discharges and lightning leaders. To accomplish this, the effects of consequential parameters on positive streamer dynamics in air are examined. Analytical approximations for streamer properties that may prove useful for model reduction are also investigated.


Hani obtained his master's degree in the physics of complex systems from the Universitat de les Illes Balears in 2018. After that, he moved to the Netherlands for his PhD as part of an MSCA international training network studying discharge processes in the atmosphere.
