Dr Mónica S. N, Oliveira,
Mónica is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. She has a PhD in Chemical & Process Engineering from Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, UK), and a first degree in Chemical Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (Portugal). She held a postdoc position in the Non-Newtonian Fluid Dynamics Research Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge MA, USA), after which she returned to the University of Porto to join CEFT (Transport Phenomena Research Centre) where she held a research position until 2012. Her research focuses on fluid flows and transport phenomena, in particular the rheology of complex fluids, non-Newtonian fluid dynamics and microfluidics. Mónica publishes her research results in leading international journals including Physical Review Letters, Physics of Fluids, Microfluidics & Nanofluidics, Soft Matter and Journal of Fluid Mechanics. She is a member of both the Society of Rheology of the American Institute of Physics, and the British Society of Rheology.
