Francisco Rosales


Francisco J. Galindo Rosales got his PhD in Mechatronics at the University of Málaga. Before arriving in Portugal, he was a post-doc researcher at the Katholieke Universiteit of Leuven. Since 2010 he has been working in Portugal, at the Transport Phenomena Research Center, an I&D unit of the University of Porto, first as a post-doc researcher (2010-2013), afterwards as an IF Auxiliary Researcher (2013-2020), and later on as a Principal Researcher (CEECIND program, 2020-2022), funded by the FCT. Since 2022 held the position of assistant professor at the Chemical Engineering Department of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. His research interests combine rheology and microfluidics.

He has published more than 55 peer-reviewed articles in international journals of relatively high impact factor (índice h=19), as well as 100 co-authored communications presented at international conferences. Just in the last years, he has gathered funds for a total value of ~1.3M€ as principal researcher, either in competitive public calls or in contracts with industry. Additionally, he has been very proactive in the organization of international conferences, such as the Iberian Meeting on Rheology and the Annual European Rheology Conference, among others. Additionally, he has promoted and organized the International Summer School in Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics (2017 & 2018).

In terms of transference of knowledge, he has developed prototypes (6) and submitted international patents (9, out of which 2 were granted). He is a co-founder of the Spin-Off company Rheinforce Lda. Since 2023, JFGR the president of the Portuguese Society of Rheology (SPR).
