Matteo StrumendoResearch Assistant Professor
Office: Room 144 Perlstein Hall
Stumendo's current research at IIT focuses on the development of the FCMOM (finite size domain complete set of trial functions method of moments), a numerical technique to solve PBE (population balance equations) and to solve the Boltzmann equation for inelastic particles. The PBE and the Boltzmann equation are two fundamental equations used to model the particulate dispersed phase in multiphase flows, which occur in reaction engineering, in fluidization, and in aerosol science and technology.
