Research group: Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry
Tomás Aquino earned his Undergraduate and Master's degrees in Theoretical Physics from the University of Lisbon, Portugal, and his PhD in the Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences department of the University of Notre Dame, IN, USA. He is interested in modeling physical processes with recourse to stochastic methods, both by analytical and computational means. He is currently developing models of transport, mixing and reaction for surface and subsurface hydrological systems that aim to capture heterogeneity through the use of stochastic descriptions. In the past, he also worked on applying probabilistic techniques to gene expression in biological cells, epidemic spread on adaptive networks, and the dynamics of multi-strain diseases such as Influenza.
