University of Florida (Master's)
Pablo recently graduated with a Master of Science degree in Mechanical engineering from the University of Florida (UF) with primary focus on thermal sciences and fluid dynamics. He acquired his bachelor’s degree and graduated from UF with honors in 2014, his passion for engineering drove him to pursue higher education as he complements his knowledge in thermodynamics and heat transfer.
In addition to his role at UF, Pablo gained hands on experience with two internships prior to his graduation in 2014. He interned at an automobile assembly line where he studied the industrial efficiency of the plant. Based on this analysis, he developed a plan to increase productivity by modifying the preliminary structure of the assembly line, thus reducing bottleneck type inefficiencies. His work included the reorganization of several stations and was presented in part to fellow engineers by drafts developed via AutoCAD. Pablo also had an internship at a metallic roof manufacturing company where he designed a novel heating system to improve the adherence of insulation polyurethane components. The system operated as a forced convection oven that was modeled using Solidworks and later manufactured and assembled complementing established working machinery. The design criteria met by this project included the transient heat transfer of from 10 to 40 °C of a metallic roofing product traveling at a constant speed through the heating system at a rate of 2m/min.
Pablo also has research experience in thermodynamic systems and CFD modelling. He was part of the steam gasification lab at UF, where he developed a computer model that allowed for the parametric study of a superheated steam gasification system integrated with a micro gas turbine. His model was developed making use of basic programming principles with Matlab and Cantera, a simple combustion simulation library. His research was focused on minimizing the consumption of biomass fuel and water while keeping a constant design electric power output. Pablo’s interest for optimization and testing for the feasibility of groundbreaking ideas has given him the opportunity to publish this work on the journal of energy conversion and management.
Besides his research, Pablo also has experience as a teaching assistant for two core undergraduate courses: thermo fluids and thermo heats design and lab. His assistantship gave him to opportunity to work with students and help them understand fundamental concepts applied on controlled experimental conditions. He administered periodic feedback sessions where he helped students with concepts such as turbomachinery, compressible flow and refrigeration.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have taken coursework including intermediate engineering analysis and finite element analysis that require substantial knowledge of linear algebra.
I have vast experience with MATLAB to solve systems of linear equations.
I have taken control theory coursework that relies on linear algebra to to evaluate problems in state space
