Annafederica Urbano

Mis à jour le

Dr. Annafederica Urbano is a researcher in the Space Advanced Concept Laboratory (SacLab) since 2019. She is an expert in space propulsion and space transportation systems. She obtained her Ph.D. in 2012 from La Sapienza University of Rome with a thesis on the regenerative cooling system of methane liquid rocket engines. Her research areas of expertise are related with the numerical simulation of reactive and two phase flows in liquid rocket engines : supercritical combustion, thermacoustic instabilities, nucleate boiling in micro-gravity, two phase compressible flows, transcritical fluids and heat transfer deterioration. Part of her activity is also devoted to the space system analysis (rocket engines and launchers) : multi-discplinary analysis and optimisation, surrogate models from CFD and artificial intelligence.
She is author or co-author of more than 40 journal and conference papers (16 ranked-A papers).
