Giorgio Besagni obtained the master degree in Energy Engineering (110L/110) in December 2012 disputing a thesis on ejector modeling: "An integrated thermodynamic/CFD approach for ejector modeling". Later, he obtained a Ph.D summa cum Laude at Politecnico di Milano, disputing a thesis on bubble column fluid dynamics "Bubble column fluid dynamics: experimental and numerical investigations". During his Ph.D he spent a guest stay period at HZDR research centre (Dresden, Germany) in the Computational Fluid Dynamics group and within RSE Spa. During his Ph.D and Post-Doc activities he collaborated with Eni (concerning downhole sour gas separation), RSE Spa (within the PASSAM European project) and HZDR (expeirmental and numerical studies of multi-phase flow. His main reserach interests concern (i) experimental and numerical investigations of multiphase flows, (ii) computational fluid-dynamics and turbulence modeling, (iii) CFD and lumped parameter modeling of energy system components, (vi) modeling of refrigeration systems.
He is author of more than 40 publications among international journals, book chapters and conference proceedings. He is in the editorial board of Renewable Energy and ENERGY Journals (Elsevier) and he acts as a reviewer for more than 20 international Journals. He is co-supervisor for different master degree theses concerning his reserach interets.
