Francisco (Paco) Gómez is a Lecturer in Computational Aerodynamics . He was previously a postdoctoral research fellow in Monash University and he obtained a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the Technical University of Madrid, while working in the Department of Propulsion at the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), Spain.
His research interests include efficient numerical methods for flow instability, turbulent flow control and reduced-order modeling. Dr Gómez's strong ability in applying theoretical and computational techniques in fluid dynamics has led to a remarkable amount of scientific productivity relative to experience, with publications in the leading journal in his field like Journal of Fluid Mechanics and experience supervising PhD students. In addition, he has an excellent record of national and international collaborations including long stays at Caltech and the University of Sao Paulo.
