Pietro Romanazzi is a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. David A. Howey at Oxford University – UK. He studied at the Università degli studi di Udine where he earned Laurea Triennale in Mechanical Engineering in November 2009 and Laurea Specialistica in Mechanical Engineering in July 2011. His final theses dealt with Thermo-Fluid Dynamic numerical simulations and the research works focused on the prediction of surface shear stress and surface instabilities in single/multi-fluid domains using custom and commercial CFD algorithms. He worked at his master thesis at the Brunel University London, as an Erasmus student, under the supervision of Prof. Luiz Wrobel. Between August 2011 and February 2014 he worked as a Project Manager for Danieli & C. Officine Meccaniche S.p.A., a global leader in the manufacture of steelmaking plants.
He is now part of the ADEPT project as a Marie Curie research fellow working on thermal analysis of electrical machines.
