Research interests

Dr Torres's research interests are in complex transport phenomena involving heat transfer and fluid mechanics, with applications in energy, environmental and biomedical engineering. He is particularly interested in experimental and theoretical mass diffusion, solid-gas interfacial transport and natural convection phenomena. He has first-authored publications in renowned journals on various topics: nonlinear dynamics and chaos, natural convection, thermodiffusion, multicomponent diffusion and phase-shifting interferometry.
