Fernando T. Pinho
Fernando T. Pinho graduated in mechanical engineering at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP) in 1984, obtained his M.S. degree in thermal engineering from the same university in 1987 and did the Ph.D. degree at Imperial College, London, in 1990. In 1990–2000 and 2000–2004, he was an Assistant and Associate Professor at FEUP, respectively. In 2004 he was awarded a higher doctorate (Agregação) by Universidade de Coimbra and moved to the Mechanical Engineering Department at Universidade do Minho, where he is now an Associate Professor. In 1991-1992 and 1993-1994 he was technical director of the Thermal Engineering Unit of INEGI, a successful private institution carrying out R&TD with industry. His research interests are in experimental, numerical, and theoretical fluid mechanics of complex fluids, including microfluidics, fluid rheology, turbulence modelling, and heat transfer. He has authored more than 65 papers in international journals with refereeing and 120 papers in conferences. Since 1994 he is a member of the Advisory Board of the biennial International Symposium on Applications of Laser Techniques to Fluid Mechanics. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluids Mechanics, the Open Mechanical Engineering Journal, the Open Mechanical Engineering Reviews, and the Open Mechanical Engineering Letters. Since 2006, he is a member of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, UK, (EPSRC) Peer Review College.
