Eduardo Divo

Dr. Divo is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and former Chair of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University now serving as the Senior Associate Dean of the College of Engineering. He completed undergraduate Degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Information Engineering from the Central Technological University (UNITEC) of Venezuela in 1992 as the top of his class honored as the Valedictorian. He completed multiple graduate Certificates and Degrees in Statistical Control from an UNITEC-ITESM-Ford joint program as well as M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 1998. Dr. Divo is actively involved in Biomedical Engineering Research particularly in the field of Cardiovascular Hemodynamics. His fundamental research concentrates on the development of Mesh-Reduction techniques such as Meshless Methods and the Boundary Element Method aiming at generating automated numerical solutions of field problems in the areas of Fluid Dynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Porosity, and Elasticity, as well as the multi-physics interaction of these phenomena in a number of ensuing applications in the Biomedical field. He has co-authored over 250 articles including 90 peer-reviewed journal papers, 7 book chapters, and 2 technical books. His research has helped him attract over $5.0 million in funding from State agencies, Federal agencies, and private industry. He has taught over 30 undergraduate and 8 graduate courses and has supervised 17 M.S. Theses and 10 Ph.D. Dissertations. He has received multiple awards such as the 2001 Pi Tau Sigma UCF Professor of the Year, the 2007 UCF CECS Teacher of the Year, the 2009 E-Week Central Florida Engineer of the Year, the 2009 UCF CECS Distinguished Researcher Award, the 2008 Teaching Award and the 2009 Research Award by the State of Florida University System, and in 2014 he received the National Education Award from the Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Corporation (HENAAC) at the Great Minds in STEM (GMiS) conference. Dr. Divo is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements (EABE), a Fellow of the Wessex Institute of Technology (WIT) in Great Britain, and a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
