Andrea is Lecturer in the Thermofluids Division, Department of Mechanical Engineering. He obtained his PhD in 2014 at the University of Florence and then he joined the Engineering Department at the University of Cambridge as Rolls-Royce Research Associate. He was appointed as Lecturer by Imperial College in October 2018. His main research interests lie in the area of multi-phase flows, with a focus on electromagnetic interactions in nanofluids. Potential applications include the development of novel hybrid thermal-electrical propulsion units for zero-carbon transportation as well as controlled delivery of substances in fluid flows.
