Short vita and research interests:
Graduated (BSc/MSc) from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 1994,
major in Theoretical Physics (Física Fundamental).
Since then I have worked on mathematical modelling (analytical and
computational) in engineering problems related to droplet and bubble
combustion. I have also worked on the the development of mathematical
methods (based on Orthogonal Collocation) for Population Balances
(with applications in Continuous Mixture Theory and Aerosol Science).
PhD completed at the Departamento de Física Matemática y
de Fluidos (UNED) in 2000. Dissertation: "Estudio de la vaporización
y combustión supercrítica y transcrítica de gotas de
combustibles líquidos". Advisors: Prof. P. L. García-Ybarra
and Prof. J. L. Castillo Gimeno.
Postdoctoral stay with Prof. D. E. Rosner at the High Temperature Chemical
Reaction Engineering Laboratory, Department of Chemical Engineering,
Yale University (June 2000 - October 2002 and every summer since 2004).
My interest in bubble combustion and population balances started during
my first stay at Yale (summer of 1998).
My main research interests are mathematical methods for partial differential
equations, mainly related to transport phenomena in fluids (multiphase,
reactive, turbulent, complex mixtures) and population balance eqs. (aerosol mechanics).
My favourite mathematical methods for PDEs are orthogonal collocation,
matched asymptotic expansions and symmetry analysis. I am also interested in
the broader subject of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics.
