Short Bio:

Dr Montomoli read mechanical engineering at University of Florence where he obtained a MSc and a PhD (and he was visiting scholar at Texas AM University, Turbine Heat Transfer Laboratory, US). After the PhD he joined the R&D group of General Electric Oil&Gas.

In 2006 Dr Montomoli joined to the University of Cambridge, Whittle Laboratory and his researches were sponsored by Rolls-Royce and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in the field of aerospace propulsion and power generation. In 2009 he becomes Mitsubishi Senior Fellow and College Lecturer at Girton College, Univ. of Cambridge

In 2011 Dr Montomoli was also Research Professor and leader of CFD group at the Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics. He is an external scientific member of BCAM.

In 2012 Dr Montomoli joined the University of Surrey as Senior Lecturer in Thermofluids.

In 2014 Dr Montomoli joined the Imperial College of London as Senior Lecturer 

He is a Chartered Engineer of Ordine degli Ingegneri della Provincia di Firenze, Italy.

In 2017 he obtained the Italian qualification as Full Professor in Mechanical Engineering

In 2018 he was promoted to Reader at Imperial College of London

As technology transfer he is co-founder of two spinouts of Imperial College of London
