Background

 

Dr. Martin Castillo has recently joined QUT (March 2009) as an academic and researcher. Prior to QUT, Dr. Castillo was a contract researcher at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan. Dr. Castillo closely worked with the Japanese Space Exploration Agency (JAXA) on the synthesis of materials in microgravity, combustion of gases in microgravity, and liquid Oxygen and liquid Methane fuel mixtures to be used in JAXA’s new GX rocket engines.

 

Dr. Castillo’s teaching involvement at QUT includes coursework in thermodynamics, taught throughout 3 courses at QUT. Dr. Castillo major teaching load includes teaching thermodynamic course (ENB130) to be delivered to over 2,500 first year students. This includes coursework, laboratory classes, and assessment in conjunction with managing teaching assistants. Further coursework involvement includes teaching to masters students that currently work in the power generation industry. This is a master’s program designed for students currently working in industry and implemented into a degree program across 3 universities (QUT, UQ, and Central Queens University).

 

Dr. Castillo has recently started teaching strengths of materials to second year engineering students. This course involves the background of statics with the incorporation of material properties which gives rise to the performance of materials.

 

Recently, Dr. Castillo has successfully received funding for an novel technique to synthesize ZBLAN Glass in microgravity. This research will be launched aboard a United States Air Force satellite in 2013.

Experience

2009-Present: The Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, AustraliaLecturer, Laboratory Manager, Phenomena in Microgravity Laboratory2006-2009: National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Tsukuba, Japan. Contract Researcher.Researching the energy and thermodynamics involved with the mixing and combustion phenomena of liquid hydrogen and liquid methane for the new “X-series” of rocket engines developed by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).  New compatible gas mixtures with optimum energy output must be implemented into the new engines designed with an advanced composite material.Researching the storage and safety of high pressure releases of hydrogen gas through various nozzle types with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).  Alternative energy future storage facilities are perceived to have high pressure hydrogen storage tanks and the safeties of high pressure releases of hydrogen are examined via computer simulations and future experimentation is to take place.Developing safety standard for the combustion of Hydrogen and Air in variable gravity conditions (i.e. ground and drop-tower experiments) via hot-wire technique.  Conjunctively, thermodynamically driven convective forces were computer simulated on the combustion of these gases in variable gravity.  The development of such safety standards are paralleled by the onset of alternative energy (e.g. Hydrogen) and how future automobile, aircraft and spacecraft will experience combustion at different gravitational levels and different delay periods.2004 – 2006: National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Tsukuba, Japan. Post Doctorate Fellow.Synthesize and characterize ZBLAN glasses produced in containerless environments; 1) porous gas levitator and 2) 10m (1.4 sec) drop tower (10-3g).   Developed heretics of gas levitation system process through porous mediums.  Implementation of drop tower in upcoming fiscal year to produce containerless processed samples in a microgravity environment.  Long term objectives include fiber synthesis investigations to produce long range signal loss glasses.  Careful thermodynamic considerations of processing techniques including microgravity were implemented to suppress the undesired crystallization of such materials.2004: Cenymer, Inc. Longmont, Colorado. Head of Material Science.Start-up venture corporation to develop and manufacture diamond-like carbon (DLC), produced from a polymer pyrolysis for thermal transport properties.  Investigated the thermal properties and transitions of various compositions of the polymer through differential scanning calorimetric techniques.  Based on the thermodynamic curing profiles of the material, recommendation and insight were given to yield higher amounts of DLC.2004 – Present: Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado. Adjunct Professor.Advisor to current graduate students, both Ph.D and M.S. candidates, in the Material Science program.  Researching possible in-situ repair of shuttle wing leading edge and acoustic dampening in turbine engines with the Center for Commercial Applications of Combustion in Space (CCACS) center, NASA Research center.   International research collaborator and facilitator.1998 – 2004: Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado. Differential Thermal Analysis Laboratory Manager.Measure thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, thermal gravimetry, and differential scanning calorimetry with the use of various NETZSCH instruments.  Maintain the instruments and the state of the laboratory.  Maintain current state of the art thermal analsysis techniques and applications.  Conduct annual differential thermal analysis conferences hosted at the Colorado School of Mines.1998 – 1999: Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado. Research Assistant.Assisted with the research of ancient metallurgy in Mesoamerica.  Analysed Mesoamerican mine ore and artifact samples through optical microscope techniques in order to characterize minerals present.  The analysis provided the location as to where the artifacts were mined and created.Researched the hot uniaxial pressing of Fly Ash and Red Mud.  The consolidation of these two hazardous waste products has the potential to create refractory or building materials.Researched porous biomaterials for bone replacement utilizing microgravity effects on NASA’s KC-135 (Vomit Commit) via combustion synthesis and with in-vivo rat studies.1996: KLH Engineering, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Surveyor and Draftsman.Surveyed developmental property for development and designed drainage plans using AutoCad.1994 – 1998: Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado.
