Meet the team

Alan Rose


Leveraging many years of experience and success in implementing CAE simulation technologies, Alan’s key objective is to effectively embed corrosion and materials simulation into the regular engineering workflow of major military and commercial enterprises. A professional consulting engineer for most of his career, Alan is passionate about using his expertise and knowledge to develop the technical and problem-solving capabilities of Corrdesa’s growing team to ensure state-of-the-art corrosion solutions.

Keith Legg


A globally acknowledged expert on materials, coatings, validation and testing, Keith ensures that Corrdesa’s R&D addresses the challenge of escalating material development needs in response to the increasing demand for enhanced performance requirements whilst being limited by ever restricting compliance legislation. Keith’s role is to listen to and interpret client’s needs for corrosion resistant designed products. Corrdesa then identifies and develops promising technologies to meet and satisfy those needs.

Siva Palani

Senior Scientist / Program Manager

Quality material data is critical for the success of reliable corrosion simulation. Applying his electrochemical expertise, Siva has invested considerable effort and resources into customizing equipment, expanding our laboratory, and developing data protocols to ensure acquisition of robust and consistent data. Siva oversees the training of our lab staff as well as the development of software tools to post-process and manage the data.

Julio Mendez

Lead Senior CFD Engineer

Resourceful and experienced Mechanical engineer with more than 15 years of progressive professional experience in Thermal- Fluids and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), specializing in CFD solvers development with High Performance Computing (HPC) applications.

Academic and professional experience in CFD, more specifically in Turbulence, Numerical Analysis, High Fidelity Numerical Computation, and Aerodynamics. More recently, I have been involved in hypersonic flows and my research interest vary from shock-turbulence interaction to Large Eddy Simulations and the implementation of Design of Experiments (DoE) and surrogate modeling to accelerate engineering designs.
