Fields: Contrails impact in the Earth´s climate

Lab Role: Research Assistant


I come from Madrid, Spain, and completed my BS+MS at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, with a double degree at the Politecnico di Torino, specializing in Space Engineering. I did my master thesis at Tsinghua University in Beijing on the topic of combustion instabilities in liquid rocket engines and then worked at the European Space Agency Operations Centre in Germany supporting Earth observation missions. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, where my research is focused on the climate impact of contrails and on the effect of new engines with higher efficiency on the contrails formation.
