Debe lucharse con todo el razonamiento contra quien,
suprimiendo la ciencia, el pensamiento y el intelecto,
pretende afirmar algo, sea como fuere.
Platón, Sofista (249c)

Education

Alejandro Martínez Calvo received his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at Universidad Carlos III (UC3M) in 2015. During his last year he collaborated as an undergraduate in the Fluid Mechanics Group (GMF). In 2016 he received a scholarship at the Applied Mathematics Department (M&NS UC3M) to complete his Master's degree in Industrial Mathematics. In 2017 Alejandro obtained a FPU grant (Training of University Professors), becoming a PhD student under the supervision of Alejandro Sevilla.

Research Interests

  • Stability of surface-tension-driven flows
  • Interfacial phenomena

Teaching Activities

Since February 2017, Alejandro has been teaching assistant in various fluid mechanics related courses.
