Fernando Pinho


Fernando Pinho currently works at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Porto, Portugal. He graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 1984, got an Msc in Thermal Engineering in 1987, both at the University of Porto, a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College, London in 1990 and a High Doctorate in 2004 from the University of Coimbra (Portugal). Since 1990 he has worked at the University of Porto with a brief spell at University of Minho in the period 2004–2008.

He has spent extended periods of time at the Mechanical Engineering Laboratory (Tsukuba, Japan), the University of Liverpool (UK), University of California at Davis (US), Washington University of St. Louis (US), Federal University of RIo de Janeiro (Brazil) and the University of StrathClyde (Scotland).

His research on complex fluids initially focused on high Reynolds number flows and was fully experimental, but over the years and with the help of various collaborators and former students his interests also include computational rheology, turbulence modeling and microfluidics.

Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics in 2013 - 2018. Since 2019 he is a Council member of Euromech as well as a Euromech Fluid Mechanics Conference Committee member.
