Albert Nardi, Barcelona, 1981, holds a degree in Industrial Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Hydrogeology from the BarcelonaTech University (UPC).
During 4 years he worked as a PhD student at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). He studied Eulerian-Lagrangian methods to solve multiphase problems and developed a multi-physics code to solve highly nonlinear problems. During that time he spent 4 months at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he studied different approaches to the Mixed Finite Element method.
Afterwards he started as a consultant at Amphos 21, an environmental consultancy company. There he modelled multiphysics problems with COMSOL for a wide variety of clients. As a project manager he was in charge of the development of a custom Java interface between COMSOL and PHREEQC.
In 2014 he embarked on a new adventure creating Barcelona Science. Here he dedicates his time to the practical implementation of numerical algorithms and he is responsible for the custom software services area.
