About me

My name is Rodolfo Ostilla Mónico, and I am currently a post doctoral researcher with Michael Brenner at Harvard University. I will move to the University of Houston to take up an assistant professor position in the Fall of 2017. My research is mainly in the field of computational fluid mechanics and am interested in the convective flows, the human olefactory system, vortex ring colissions and also in other canonical turbulent systems. A longer explanation of my research can be found on the research page.

My doctoral degree was obtained in the Physics of Fluids group at the University of Twente under the supervision of Roberto Verzicco and Detlef Lohse. This research focused on large scale direct numerical simulations of incompressible turbulence in Taylor-Couette flow and Rayleigh-Bénard convection. Previously, I obtained a degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Sevilla (Spain) and an MSc in Aerospace Dynamics from Cranfield University (UK).

During my free time I play bass guitar, juggle and travel the world.
