Martin J.Guillot, PhD, PE, received his BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of New Orleans in 1985 and 1988, respectively. He received his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992. Upon graduation from the University of Texas he worked at the Institute for Advanced Technology performing aero-thermal analyses of high velocity projectiles. He joined the faculty of the Mechanical Engineering Department in 1997. His primary research interests include computational fluid dynamics modeling, with focus on shallow water flow, high speed aerodynamics, and blood flow modeling, including non-Newtonian flow.
Dr. Guillot has been a principal investigator on projects that include hurricane storm surge modeling, aero-thermal analysis of small payloads launched to low earth orbit, and computational fluid dynamics modeling of staged fontan procedures for infants born with univentricular heart disease. He received his PE license in 2010 and is currently a registered PE in Louisiana and Texas.
