Alessandro De Rosis


Personal profile


I work as a Lecturer in Virtual Engineering at the University of Manchester. After having received the Master Degree in Civil Engineering at University of Calabria (2009), I moved to the University of Bologna where I completed the PhD in Structural and Hydraulic Engineering (2013). In 2015, I have been awarded the PRESTIGE postdoctoral mobility grant (Marie Curie Actions) that allowed me to spend 18 months at the Laboratoire de Mecanique des Fluides et Acoustique where I developed lattice Boltzmann algorithms to simulate high-Reynolds magnetohydrodynamic flows. I also spend a period at the Biofluids Laboratory of the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology aiming at simulating biological flows.

Research interests

My research activity deals mainly with multiphysics modelling by lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). In particular, the key idea is to develop original LB algorithms allowing us to simulate a rich variety of physics problems (e.g., fluid-structure interaction, multiphase flows, passive scalar transport, magnetohydrodynamics, shallow water flows, tissue/cells proliferation).


A passionate scientist working in the field of multiphysics modelling by lattice Boltzmann method. Enthusiastic author of more than 30 papers in scientific international peer-reviewed journals. Charmed by challenging physics problems.
