My background is in mathematics. I studied the degree (Licenciatura), master, and Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Barcelona (Spain). The latter was done under the supervision of C. Simó and A. Vieiro. The thesis dealt with transport properties of low dimensional conservative systems. These systems are interesting because they are simplified models of problems, e.g., in Physics, Astronomy and Astrodynamics. After my Ph.D. I moved to the study of the dynamics of solar sails around the triangular libration points in the RTBP, and mission design related to them. I joined the COMPASS team in February 2018 as a Postdoctoral researcher, where I deal with problems concerning attitude dynamics.
