CV Lattes

Birthplace: Brazil

Alberto Costa is graduated in Mechanical Engineering by State University of Campinas (1994) having been awarded with a fellowship in the Exchange Program for Engineering Students at Institut National Des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon - France (1992-1993). He has Master and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering by Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, State University of Campinas (1998 and 2002, respectively) in the following areas: High Order Spectral/hp Finite Element formulations for 3D unstructured meshes applied to non-linear Elasticity, Algebraic Multigrid schemes and scientific software coding in C++ language. He also concluded two post-doctorates in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) area, one at Faculty of Civil Engineering, State University of Campinas (2004), and the other at Brazilian Aerospace Institute (IAE), Department of Aerospace Science and Technology - DCTA (2006). From 2004 to 2013, Alberto was the CEO of Thorus Scisoft Technology company and accumulated important industrial and R,D&I experience working as a technology entrepreneur. From 2012 to May 2013, he was professor of the graduate and post-graduate courses in Mechanical Engineering of the Centro Universitário Salesiano de São Paulo. His areas of interest are: High-order Discontinuous Galerkin Method (DGM), Spectral Element Method (SEM), Finite Element Method (FEM), Finite Volume Method (FVM), Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM), compressible inviscid and viscous flows at high Mach and Reynolds numbers, turbulence modeling, incompressible multi-phase flows in porous media, microflows/nanoflows and High Performance Computing (HPC) for engineering simulation. Since May, 2013, he is a Research Staff Member in the Natural Resources group at IBM Research Lab Brazil. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
