Alejandro Sevilla Santiago received his degree in Physics (5 year programme) at the Faculty of Physics of the Autónoma University of Madrid in the year 1999. After finishing his studies he moved as a teaching assistant to Carlos III University, where he got his Master (2001) and PhD (2004) degrees in Engineering Mathematics under the supervision of Profs. Carlos Martínez-Bazán and José Manuel Gordillo. His thesis research concerned the experimental and theoretical study of the dynamics of bubble formation in a co-flow configuration at high Reynolds numbers.
In 2005 he was awarded a “Juan de la Cierva” fellowship at the School of Aeronautics of the Polytechnic University of Madrid. During that year, he stayed for 6 months as a post-doctoral researcher at the Physics of Fluids Group of Twente University (The Netherlands). During 2006-2009 he moved to the University of Jaén, where he worked as Assistant Professor at the School of Engineering.
In 2009 he got a position as an Assistant Professor at the Fluid Mechanics Group of Carlos III University of Madrid, followed by his current position as an Associate Professor at the same institution.
