Roberto Nunez

Postdoctoral Fellow

E2416 Lafferre Hall



Nunez received his Ph.D. in Mathematics in 2021 from the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU). He specialized in algebraic geometry, an area in which he has published two original research papers. In August 2021, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at MU as a Postdoctoral Fellow. At EECS, Nunez used tools of dynamical systems and artificial intelligence to develop and study mathematical models of physiological systems, such as the lower urinary tract and retinal circulation. In collaboration with interdisciplinary teams based in the US and across the world, his work on physiology has resulted in several peer-reviewed articles and international conference presentations. In August 2022, Nunez joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at MU as a Postdoctoral Fellow. He is currently interested in the mathematical modeling of oscillating heat pipes via a combination of principle-based modeling and machine learning techniques.
