Dr Andres Peratta received his MSc in Physics in 2001 from the University of  Buenos Aires, Argentina, and his PhD in 2004 from the Wessex Institute of  Technology (WIT) - University of Wales, UK. During 2005 he has been a Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer at the Wessex  Institute of Technology, Southampton, UK, and became a member of the  Editorial Board of the Journal of Communications, Software and Systems  (JCOMSS) sponsored by the IEEE and SoftCom Society.

In 2006 he became Head of the ICE Division at Wessex Institute of Technology  and ISAC member of the WIT International Conferences on Environmental
Electromagnetic Compatibility, Simulation of Electrochemical Processes, and  Computational Ballistics. He has been author or co-author of more than 40 specialised publications in international peer reviewed journals and  transactions.

His research interests are Numerical Modelling including Boundary and Finite Element methods for Electromagnetic Fields, Fluid Dynamics and Continuum Mechanics. He has participated in several internationally funded research projects involving modelling of fluid flow in porous media, corrosion, cathodic protection systems and electrochemical processes, as well as electromagnetic modelling in biological tissues.
