Postdoctoral Researcher at

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid


I am a postdoctoral researcher working on problems related to detonations and hypersonic shocks. My journey began with studies in Industrial Engineering in Málaga (Spain) and further academic experiences in Romania and Mexico. I later pursued a M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), where I also completed my Ph.D. thesis in fluid dynamics under the supervision of Prof. Marcos Vera and Prof. César Huete.

My research focuses on the theoretical study of shock and detonations that travel along non-uniform conditions, and I am actively involved in the development of the open-source thermochemical tool called the Combustion Toolbox, CT.
