Alberto Cuadra-Lara

PhD candidate at

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid


I was born in Málaga (Spain) where I studied Industrial Engineering passing through two long-term stays abroad in Politehnica University of Bucharest (Romania) and Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (México) for 11 and 5 months, respectively. Feeling that my ability in mathematical modelling didn’t meet my personal requirements, I considered studying a MSc in Applied Mathematics at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). Currently, I’m doing my PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. Marcos Vera and Prof. César Huete at UC3M. My research focuses on two main lines of work: first, on the development of an open-source wider-scope thermochemical tool (hereafter referred to as Combustion Toolbox, CT). Second, in the theoretical study of shock and detonations that travel along non-uniform conditions, both with the main idea of retrofeed each other.
