Andra Mantighian
CFD Engineer

Andra earned a BSc in Aerospace Structures at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Politehnica University of Bucharest, where she was Valedictorian. She continued her studies at the University of Southampton, where she earned her Master’s degree in Race Car Aerodynamics.

Since graduating, Andra has worked as a CFD engineer in the automotive sector, focusing on thermal management, internal/external aerodynamics and power electronics simulations. 

As a student, she always wanted to take a course that directly combined the mathematical background of physical phenomena and the usage of top CFD software, which inspired her to develop this course.
