Raul Esquivel-Sirvent is a full-time researcher at the Institute of Physics of the National University of Mexico (UNAM), in Mexico City. After completion of his B.Sc in Physics degree from UNAM, he obtained his M. Sc and Ph. D at Ohio University working in ultrasound propagation in disordered media, followed by a postdoctoral position in Geophysics studying ultrasound propagation in rocks.
Dr. Esquivel-Sirvent research focuses on wave propagation in random media and heat transport in mesoscale systems. Most recently his research projects include several topics in quantitative medical ultrasound both experimentally and numerical simulations including quantitative ultrasound of breast lesions, characterization of contrastants for ultrasonic imaging and applications of homogenization models to describe wave propagation in tissue.
