Research Software Engineer

Luisa Orozco


Luisa is a Civil Engineer with a MSc in Geotechnics from Los Andes University in Colombia. In 2016, she moved to Montpellier where she enrolled a PhD on a project between the French alternative energies and atomic energy commission (CEA), the laboratory of mechanics and civil engineering (LMGC) and INRAe. Her work focused on the Discrete element method (DEM) simulations of particle breakage inside rotating cylinders to find scaling laws for the milling industrial process.

After obtaining her PhD in 2019, Luisa became a research and teaching assistant at Montpellier University in France. In 2020, she joined the Applied Statistical Physics group (GRASP) as a Postdoc at the University of Liège in Belgium, where she studied the aeration properties of granular media.

Luisa joined the Netherlands eScience Center as a Research Software Engineer in the Natural Sciences & Engineering Section in March 2022.
