    Fluid Dynamics Branch, National Institute for Aerospace Technology, Spain

    1999. Ph.D. in Theoretical Particle Physics (topic: Duality in Topological quantum field theory), University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Adviser: J.M.F. Labastida.

    1999-2000. Post-doc, Theoretical Particle Physics (group of Howard Schnitzer), Physics Department, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, USA.

    2001-present. Research Scientist, Computational Aerodynamics, Fluid Dynamics Branch, National Institute for Aerospace Technology, Madrid, Spain.

    His past research focused on topological quantum field theories and applications of the Seiberg-Witten theory to both mathematical and physical problems. His current research focus on algorithms for CFD, adjoint methods for aerodynamic design optimization, and the simulation of turbulence.
