About

Welcome to my webpage! My name is Arnaldo Rodriguez-Gonzalez, and I’m currently a Ph.D. candidate in Theoretical & Applied Mechanics at Cornell. Here you’ll find a comprehensive listing of my works, scientific or otherwise, along with other assorted miscellanea. Enjoy!

Research Interests

I am by-and-large a theoretician and computational scientist, interested in developing mathematical frameworks to understand “exotic” physical phenomena and then applying these models to solve high-impact problems in engineering. Most of the time, this involves highly complicated systems for which a simplified model of the dominant physics can be determined. Currently, I use dynamical systems theory to understand & engineer microhydrodynamic phenomena at the Cornell Micro/Nanofluidics Laboratory.
