Alejandro received his MSc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of The Basque Country in 2010. He then joined one of the leading Service Companies in the Basque Country. In 2012 he decided to change his career path and started a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering together with an MSc. in Industrial Engineering. He recently obtained his second MSc. Together with his Ph.D. at the University of Strathclyde while working as a Research Fellow at the Chemical and Process Engineering School, University of Leeds. His PhD studies the influence of the geometrical changes on the fluid flow due to erosion processes. At Leeds University he has been modelling the Vertical Roller Mill developed by IIT with CFD and DEM, optimising it for erosion and investigating particle breakage and Energy Utilisation both computationally and experimentally. This project was sponsored by the UK Government’s Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI). He is currently working on Flowability of cohesive powders in Advanced Digital Design of Pharmaceutical Therapeutics (ADDoPT) project, which has been funded to accelerate the translation of molecules into medicinal products. The main focus of the project is on DEM simulation and experimental validation of Powder Flow for both cohesive and non-cohesive powders.
