Prof. Andrea Prosperetti
Andrea Prosperetti’s work is mostly theoretical and computational. Most of it is devoted to several aspects of multiphase flow: bubble dynamics, numerical simulation of flows with suspended particles (both fully resolved and approximated as points), averaged equations and averaging methods, heat transfer with phase change, acoustics and others. He is the Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Multiphase Flow and member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences. He permanent appointment is at the University of Houston in the U.S., but he holds a part-time appointment at the University of Twente.
