    Sept 05 - Oct 14    MSc in Aerospace Engineering, Space Vehicles (Technical University of Madrid, UPM - ETSIA)

    Sept 03 - Jun 05    Scientific-Technologic High School (Sant Miquel dels Sants College of Vic)

    Sept 99 - Jun 03    Secondary School (Vedruna School of Tona)

    Sept 93 - Jun 99    Primary School (Vedruna School of Tona)


    Recent Occupation

    Nov 14 - Oct 16    Young Graduate Trainee at European Space Agency (ESTEC, Netherlands).

    During the two intense years at ESA’s Education and Knowledge Management Office I worked on different projects, CanSat being my major responsibility. However, in addition to organising ESA's European CanSat Competitions and supporting national competitions, I was involved in many other projects and activities such as robotic competitions, the design and testing of experiments for the ISS and the development of robotic activities in different ESA centres. I led and presented different sessions in several teacher trainings and university student workshops on automation and have developed electronic platforms and robotic activities operating the drop tower of the Erasmus building. I made use of 3D printers to support new designs and platforms such as the development of the Astro Pi kit working in close collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Moreover, I helped to organise the ISEB International Student Programme of the International Astronautical Congress and collaborated in the launch and tracking of CubeSats in orbit updating the ground station at ESTEC among many others.

    May 13 - Oct 14   Master Thesis at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Center, Spain.

    I worked directly with the Science Operations team, generating precise data for space missions such as Mars Express, Venus Express and JUICE. I worked in the development team of the Solar System Science Operations Laboratory (SOLab), which is an ESA research project to study and develop new techniques and tools in support of the Science Operations Centres (SOCs) for Solar System missions. Tasks included the development of system modules focusing in geometry computation, analysis of science opportunity events and visualization of contextual geometry in a 2D environment. I had also the opportunity to get familiarized with the ESA framework and operational systems, in close collaboration with the Science Operation Centres of different planetary missions. It included working with currently flying missions such as Venus Express and Mars Express, as well as supporting development and study of future missions like JUICE. Coverage analysis on different target bodies and specific data file generation software for application in different missions were also some of the developments accomplished.


    Previous Experience

    Sept 14 Internship at National University of Sciences and Technology in Islamabad, Pakistan.

    I developed a UAV platform that could be effectively used for disaster survey and small scale relief operations. I had to integrate an autopilot system to each of the four UAVs of the laboratory so they could carry a 1kg payload of first aids and food to disaster affected areas. I also carried out many simulations and various tests to assure the correct communication between the UAVs and the ground stations.

    Feb 14 - Mar 14    Researcher at the Faculty of Engineering of Hokkaido University, Japan.

    During my research at the Computational Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, I studied the re-entry of space vehicles in different planetary atmospheres and the performance of the plasma flow around the vehicles. One of the main goals was to reduce the RF blackout time that spacecraft suffer when entering atmospheres due to the ionisation of the surrounding plasma. To analyse this phenomenon I used different programs, methods and algorithms in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace eXploration Agency (JAXA). I conducted many simulations using hundreds of CPUs from the numerical simulation facilities that we had at our disposal. The concentration of electrons in the electromagnetic flow around the vehicle was critical to assess the absorption of RF. At the end, my results were presented at the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers Annual Meeting under the title: "Prediction Performance of Plasma Flow and RF Blackout around a Reentry Vehicle with an Angle of Attack".

    Courses 11-12-13 Instructor of “Robotics, science and space technology” Lycée Français, Madrid.

    I lead a couple of courses related to robotics, science and space technology to secondary school students during two full school years using new learning methodologies and practical sessions.

    Oct 11 - Nov 11    Researcher at the Moscow State Technical University “MAMI”, Russia.

    I studied the strength of composite materials and its components, their physical and mechanical properties and the weakest-link theory in fibers within others.

    Jul 11    Internship at the Spanish Air Force, in the ALA-15 of the Zaragoza Air Base.

    Technical studies and works focusing on the operation of the F/A-18 Hornet fighters.

    May 11 - Oct 14   Instructor educational sessions at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Center.

    As an instructor at Planeta Ciencias, I gave many lectures and lead sessions related to space, launchers, spacecraft technologies and ESA missions within others.

    Jul 10 - Aug 10     Trainee at the PV Company ISET Technologies GmbH in Kassel, Germany.

    I worked on the development of an online database of photovoltaic related products for the US market and did different market studies to expand the company to other countries.

    Aug 09 - Dec 12    Teacher of math, physics, technology and economics to university students.

    Jul 09    Trainee at the vessels company Motor-Nauta Sp. z o.o. in Gdynia, Poland.

    Contribution to different mechanical works on vessels like repairs of main and auxiliary engines of various types and powers, electrical power units, engine room devices such as compressors, pumps, heat exchangers, separators, etc.

    Jul 07 - Aug 07     Teacher of mathematics and physics to Secondary and High School students.
