Mr. Murilo Marangon Cicolin

PhD student Gas Innovation Fellowship Program

Murilo is a PhD Student enrolled in the Joint Degree Programme between University of Sao Paulo and Imperial College London. He started the studies at Imperial College London in October 2018.

Murilo developed experimental research for five years in the hydrodynamic laboratory of the University of Sao Paulo during his Undergraduate, MSc and PhD studies. The main topics of his research are control of flow over bluff bodies and fluid-structure interaction.

His current research investigates the control of flow over a bluff body with control rods placed in its wake. It has an important application in the offshore industry, seeing that it can reduce the loads induced by sea current in platforms, cables and other subsea systems used for oil and gas extraction.
