Dr Juan C. Padrino
Research Fellow, University of Warwick
I am a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick working in the Micro & Nano Fluids Group in modelling and numerical simulation of low-speed rarefied gas dynamics in the micro- and nanometer scales. Previously, I held research positions at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and the University of California, Irvine. I also worked for six years in the oil industry as research engineer for the upstream and midstream sectors. My research interests include computational fluid dynamics, with emphasis on multiphase flow, interfacial instabilities, perturbation and numerical methods in fluid mechanics, multiphase flow in porous media, Hele-Shaw flow, rheology, enhanced oil recovery, shale gas flow, carbon dioxide sequestration, multiphase flow in pipelines and wells, and fluid-structure interactions. I hold MS and PhD degrees in mechanics and aerospace engineering from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and a BS degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Zulia.
