Dr Gloria Milena Monsalve Bravo

Advanced Queensland Industry Resear

School of Chemical Engineering
Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology


Gloria is an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellow at The University of Queensland’s School of Chemical Engineering, where She uses novel multiscale simulation techniques, combining molecular simulations with macroscopic physics-based modeling, to solve energy and environmental problems. She works at the interface between applied mathematics and engineering to build models to explore and improve understanding of phenomena driving behaviour of complex systems as well as to develop computational methods to improve simulation tools for multiple applications, ranging from chemical and biomedical engineering to ecology.
