Short Bio


Daniel Moreno Boza received his 5-year degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Universidad of Málaga (UMA) in 2013. He was a PhD student at the University Carlos III de Madrid at the Thermal Engineering and Fluid Mechanics department from February 2014 to March 2015, when he moved to the University of California, San Diego where he completed his PhD under the supervision of Professor Antonio L. Sánchez at the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department. His PhD Thesis, titled Stability and asymptotic analyses of effects of buoyancy on reactive flows was defended on October 2017.

Research Interests

Daniel’s research interests include numerical methods for the study of the structure and global stability of reactive and non-reactive flows. In particular, his current line of research concerns the study of laminar jet diffusion flames, as well as the stability of incompressible jets. Daniel has also dedicated time to look at the well-known Frank-Kamenetskii problem, extending the classical results to buoyancy-controlled regimes and other relevant geometries.
