Dr. Fávero is a chemical engineer in Exponent's Thermal Sciences Practice consulting primarily in the areas of oil and gas, process safety and risk analysis, and advanced thermal fluid analysis. He specializes in the investigation and analysis of reactive flow processes. 

During his time at Exponent, Dr. Fávero has analyzed the hazards of flammable liquid storage and dispensing systems, conducted studies of laminar and turbulent flow of non-Newtonian fluids, and investigated the failure of multiple pressurized gas systems. He has extensive experience in reactive flow process, upstream (petroleum) engineering, and flow assurance with emphasis on asphaltene and waxes deposition.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Fávero performed his Ph.D. research at the University of Michigan with focus on precipitation and deposition of wax and asphaltenes, colloidal stability, and crude oil rheology. In this area of upstream engineering and flow assurance, Dr. Fávero made significant advances in understanding the mechanism of asphaltene destabilization, aggregation, and deposition. He also developed a asphaltene deposition apparatus that is used to evaluate performance of asphaltene deposition inhibitors. Dr. Fávero also contributed to the development of a software to predict wax deposit formation on the interior wall of subsea pipelines.
