Angel Velazquez

Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain


Angel Velazquez got his Doctorate on mechanical engineering at Sevilla University in Seville, Spain. Then, he spent two years as a Post Doc in the Institute for Fusion Theory at Hiroshima University in Hiroshima, Japan. His field of research over there was plasma physics. After moving back to Europe, he spent another two years working as a Research Scientist at the European Space Agency ESA-ESTEC, in the Netherlands, in the aerothermodynamics field. After leaving ESA-ESTEC, he worked for twelve years at the Aerospace Division of SENER (one of the leading engineering companies in Spain) carrying out project development and management. In 2004, he started working full time at the School of Aeronautics of the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (Technical University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain). His current position is Full Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Fluid Mechanics and Aerospace Propulsion Department. Apart from lecturing at the undergraduate and graduate levels, he leads a research group at the School of Aeronautics. His current R&D lines of interests are as follows: mixing in laminar flows, droplet dynamics in aeronautics flows, some aspects of fluid-structure interaction, and the development of reduced order models in fluid mechanics/aerodynamics. He has served for four years as Member of the European Space Agency Physical Sciences Working Group. He is the author of 50 articles in Journals with JCR impact factor and has directed 12 Ph.D. theses.
