k the applied field. Due to the competition between magnetic torques and viscous drag, there is a lag between the applied field and the average magnetization of the suspension. Rinaldi's work has allowed a precise quantitative description of these and other phenomena. It also facilitates the development of novel applications of magnetic nanoparticles in time-varying magnetic fields, such as magnetic nanoparticle based sensors and magnetic fluid hyperthermia, a form of cancer treatment currently under investigation.

Rinaldi is deeply committed to the recruitment and retention of students from underrepresented groups in engineering. He has served as the undergraduate research advisor to 39 Hispanic students, 27 of whom are female. He also regularly advises students from UPR-Mayaguez on applying to summer research programs, graduate school and national fellowship competitions.
