Personal profile

Research interests

Pablo Druetta received his mechanical engineer degree in 2004 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and he worked as assistant professor of fluid mechanics and piping/mechanical engineer for the next 10 years in different projects around the world, from basic to detailed engineering. He moved in 2014 to Groningen to pursue his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Picchioni, which defended successfully in 2018.

Afterwards, he worked as lecturer and lead engineer in different companies in the north of the Netherlands, until he was appointed in 2022 assistant professor with education profile at the University of Groningen.

As professor with education profile, he is focused on the improvement of the education techniques and quality in the different engineering tracks, proposing new teaching techniques and the introduction of new technologies in the lecture rooms. From a research point of view, he is busy with the modelling of (chemical) engineering processes by means of computational tools, i.e. CFD. He has extensive experience in engineering projects and teaching in engineering tracks. He has developed several courses in the Chemical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management and Mechanical Engineering.
