About me

I started working at CATS in April 2021. I would define my interests and education as multidisciplinary. I have studied Aerospace Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, and at the same time I participated in the passionate world of Formula Student, joining the UPC ecoRacing team. Now, I am engaged to this new challenge at CATS.


  • 2014-2018: B.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Thesis: Analysis and optimization of the current gears transmission system of the UPC ecoRacing Formula Student vehicle.
  • 2018-2020: M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, with 1 year Erasmus+ program at RWTH Aachen. Thesis: Visualisation and simulation of non-crimp fabrics using the hybrid Lagrangian/Eulerian Material-Point-Method.


My research interests include the following:

  • Numerical modeling of the filling stage in injection moulding,
  • Two-phase flow simulations based on Level-Set method,
  • Stabilized space-time finite element discretization of Navier-Stokes equations, and
  • Crystallization models for semi-crystalline polimers.

I am currently working as a research assistant under the supervision of Prof. Marek Behr in the research subproject B5 Adaptive Computational Grid in Space and Time for the Efficient Simulation of Moving Phase Boundaries, in the framework of the Collaborative Research Center 1120 Precision Melt Engineering, funded by the German Science Foundation.
