Andro Mikelić was born in Split, Dalmatia, Croatia and completed his basic education in Dalmatia. He graduated from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Zagreb, Croatia in 1979 and obtained his Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 1983 from the same university. He was awarded the Leverhulm Trust postdoctoral positions at the Imperial College, London and at the University of Sussex in 1986 and 1987. He was awarded the Fulbright and Humboldt scholarships in 1991 and 1992. Since 1992, he has been a Professor of applied mathematics at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon, France. He became a Full Professor at same university in 2000 and a Full Distinguished Professor in 2011.
From January 2011 to December 2013 he is awarded the W. Romberg Guest Professorship at the Universitaet Heidelberg. In 2012, he was awarded the Interpore Procter and Gamble Award for Porous Media Research. Since June 2014, he is a corresponding member of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
He spent his sabbatical leaves at the Universitaet Heidelberg, Institut fuer Angewandte Mathematik and IWR in 1998/99, in 2005/2006 and partly in 2012/2013; at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2006 and in 2012 and at ICES, The University of Texas at Austin in 2013. He has been visiting for one month periods Universitaet Heidelberg; University of Houston; Centre Bernoulli (EPFL), Lausanne; ICES , University of Texas at Austin; Universita degli Studi di Firenze; Darcy Center, Universitaet Utrecht and the Mathematical Institute, Academy of Sciences,. He has a status of the post - W. Romberg Guest Professor at the Universitaet Heidelberg.
He has published more than 169 research papers with many different coauthors and his research activities include
Homogenization theory and applications. (Research on homogenization of the pore level Navier- Stokes and Euler equations and equations describing multiphase flows through porous media, with the goal of finding effective filtration laws. Determination of effective constitutive laws at the interfaces porous medium / free fluid and the wall laws describing rough boundaries. Stochastic homogenization. Bio-mathematical applications: blood flow modeling and in homogenization of the reactive flows with dominant Péclet and Damkohler numbers)
