Dr. Ernesto Gutierrez-Miravete is Professor of Practice in the Department of Engineering and Science at Rensselaer at Hartford. He has gained international recognition through his work in the mathematical modeling of free and moving boundary problems in materials engineering, specifically those involving solidification, melting, and other phase transformations in metals and alloys. He is an expert in mathematical modeling and computer simulation of metals processing and manufacturing operations with accumulated research, consulting, and teaching experience spanning over twenty years.

As a member of the Rensselaer faculty, Professor Gutierrez-Miravete has developed curricula for a broad variety of courses and programs in metallurgy, materials, mechanical engineering, manufacturing, and mathematical modeling and stochastic simulation. He has also pioneered the use of Internet-centered, hyperlinked tools for graduate level instruction.

Dr. Gutierrez-Miravete has also taught and/or conducted research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge; the Swedish Institute for Metals Research in Stockholm, Sweden; the Center for Advanced Studies in Saltillo, Mexico; the Monterrey Institute of Technology in Monterrey, Mexico; the Universidad Iberoamericana and the National University of Mexico in Mexico City; and the Central Bank Museum in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

He has been active as an industrial research consultant in the fields of metallurgy and mathematical modeling for several large industrial companies including United Technologies Corporation, Olin Corporation, ABB, and NASA in the United States; Billiton in The Netherlands; SSAB in Sweden; Hylsa and Sicartsa in Mexico; Cerro Matoso in Colombia; and the Central Bank of Ecuador.

Professor Gutierrez-Miravete has published more than 30 technical papers, contributed chapters to books, translated eight technical textbooks, and is or has been a member of many professional societies. He is regularly asked to review research proposals for the U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation, the Army Research Office, and other organizations; technical papers submitted for publication to archival journals such as Materials Science and Engineering and Metallurgical and Materials Transactions; as well as book manuscripts submitted to publishers such as Elsevier, McGraw-Hill, and others.
