Scientific Career Path (chronologically)

January 2020

Anselmo Soeiro Pereira graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES), Brazil, in 2009. In 2012, he obtained a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the same University, following the conclusion of an experimental research devoted to viscoelastic turbulent flows supported by the Brazilian National Agency for Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) under the supervision of Dr. Edson José Soares. As a Research Grant Recipient of the Brazilian Research Council (CNPq, Program “Science Without Borders”), he obtained, in 2016, his PhD from Polytech’Lille, Université de Lille, France, for his numerical works on the “transient aspects of the polymer induced drag reduction phenomenon” under the supervision of Dr. Gilmar Mompean (Polytech’Lille) and Dr. Laurent Thais (Polytech’Lille). For his PhD works, he was honoured with the Annual Thesis Prize of the French Rheology Society (GFR). Since 2017, thanks to a PSL Research Grant (Paris Science et Lettres) he has been working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Centre for material forming (Cemef), MINES ParisTech, PSL Research University, in Sophia Antipolis, France. As a Rheologist (or Soft Matter Scientist), he currently works on a variety of challenging topics in Fluid Mechanics, such as: multiphase flows and interfacial problems; elastic and elasto-inertial turbulence; turbulent drag reduction induced by polymers; and on behaviour of non-Newtonian materials. These researches are conducted from theoretical, experimental and numerical standpoints in close collaboration with Drs. Rudy Valette, Elie Hachem, Romain Castellani, Gilmar Mompean and Roney L. Thompson.
