Keith Patarroyo

Class of 2021

Keith Patarroyo studied physics at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia and is now a student at Université de Montréal working on his MSc in computer graphics. His research interests are in digital physics, discrete differential geometry, non-equilibrium statistical physics and the formalization of mathematics. He has been interested in discrete models of physics since the beginning of his career, first working from a mathematical perspective (FEM), then from a physical perspective (lattice Boltzmann) and now with a computer science perspective (discrete differential geometry). Currently, he is working on two projects. The first is discrete differential geometry for elasticity and the second is related to non-equilibrium statistical physics and optimal transport to understand the nature of entropy and information in the physical world.
