Omar D Lopez Mejia
Omar Dario Lopez Mejia, PhD, is an associate professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. Prof. Lopez obtained his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas in Austin, USA, with specialization in thermal-fluid systems. His area of expertise is related to the simulation of external flows at moderate and high Reynolds number, including the simulation of the flow around MAVs, both fixed-wing and with rotors. Specifically, Prof. Lopez is interested in developing computational frameworks in which unsteady fluid dynamics simulation, structure interaction (RBD or flexible), and energy efficiency and control (including flow control) are highly coupled.
