Office Hours: WED 1-2 PM
Dr Montomoli is a Senior Lecturer at Imperial College of London. His main research activities are on Heat Transfer, Gas Turbines, Uncertainty Quantification, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Rare Events, Aircraft Engines, Optimization. The two main areas of research of the UQLab are forward propagation of uncertainty and optimization/design under uncertainty.
The UQLab is also working on design for additive manufacturing.
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 2016 he started UQuant ltd, a spinout of Imperial College that is licensing our codes.
