Service Description

I am an Aeronautical Engineer from the IUA (Instituto Universitario Aeronáutico - Argentina). From 2003 to 2005 I was part of Dr. Sacco's research team at IUA. During that time, I was awarded with Cordoba Science Agency's Research Grant to develop a Navier-Stokes code for pollutant dispersion, convective heat transfer and rotating machinery simulations. I also played a major role in racing cars aerodynamics research carried out at IUA funded by Toyota Team Argentina. My research work has been presented in several conferences on the subject. In 2005, I co-founded AeroDreams UAV, where I have not only developed as an entrepreneur but also as aerodynamics & flight test engineer and Unmanned Aerial Vechicle (UAV) operator. I am responsible for the design of the operational Strix UAV, Petrel high-speed aerial target and Ñancú electrical UAV and have over 100 UAV mission flights. Since 2008, I have been increasingly involved in consulting in various fields of engineering. In early 2009 I co-founded Windcross, a small consulting firm with focus in CFD & FEA services. This company was later absorbed by ESSS, the biggest simulation consulting company in South America, where I worked for 2 years as an application engineer and Fluent/CFX instructor. Since 2012 I have been working as an independent/freelance consultant, solving clients problems mainly by engineering simulations (CFD & FEA).
