Alfonso A. Castrejón-Pita, Associate Professor (Fluid Mechanics) and Royal Society University Research Fellow, Fellow and Tutor in Engineering
Alfonso joined the University of Oxford in October 2013, holding the title of Associate Professor (Fluid Mechanics) together with a Royal Society University Research Fellowship.
In Oxford he established the Fluid Dynamics Laboratory where he and his group study a variety of fluid flows phenomena, from drop formation and splashing, to geophysical flows and turbulence. These investigations are carried out by combining theoretical work, numerical simulations, and experimentation.
Alfonso obtained his DPhil in Physics at Oxford in 2008, and his MSc (2004) and BSc (2002) in Physics in Mexico. Before returning to Oxford in 2013, he spent two years at the University of Cambridge as a Research Associate where he was a also member of St Johns College.
