Eugenio Aulisa graduated in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2001 and obtained his Ph.D. in Energetic, Nuclear and Environmental Control Engineering from the same institution in 2005. His first appointment at Texas Tech was as a Visiting Assistant Professor before entering a tenure-track position in 2007. He become Associate professor in 2012. His primary research interests are in Computational fluid mechanics, including modeling and simulation of multiphase flows and fluid-structure interaction problems, non-linear analysis of fluid flow filtration in porous media, and multigrid solvers with domain decomposition methods. His most recent interests include dynamic control of distributed parameter systems governed by partial differential equation.
