    CV
    Region of Interests
     
    In general, I am interested in any field related with the space based missions. However, I have not specific technical skills that would allow me to apply for a specific position. Nevertheless both my physics and IT background have become very solid during my studies, and this means I have high adaptability possibilities. I am looking forward at the moment for a position that allows me to get this technical knowledge to gain some experience.
    The most familiar regions for me on the space field would be hydrodynamical simulations and modelling, both fields that are related to my master thesis experience where I performed my own simulations along with the data analysis/visualization. Therefore, the possibility I think could match better at the moment with my curriculum would be an internship in a space related company, which I hope it would bring me the opportunity to start my career in this exciting field.
