Biography: 

Arturo Ortega is a Mechanical and Electrical Engineer. Currently, he is working in numerical simulation of wind and tidal turbines.
Before joined to the Institute for Energy System, Arturo has been working for the oil and gas industry (onshore and offshore) for several years. He has been involved in research and engineering projects related to fluid dynamics, structural dynamics, and fluid-structure interaction. 
He is an experienced computer programmer. He has implemented complex algorithms, included non-linear differential equations, for engineering and scientific programs. He also is a numerical analyst. He has carried out advanced  CFD and FEM analysis using commercial programs.
Arturo also has experience in lecturing and coaching. Currently, he is advising M.Sc. and Ph.D. projects. 
His research area includes offshore wind/tidal turbines, mooring systems, marine risers and pipelines,  transient flow, two-phase flow, structural dynamics, fluid-structure interaction, optimization, ML and AI.
