My research experience is mainly centered in the computational solid mechanics field with a strong focus on the development of computational tools for the multiscale analysis and design of engineering materials and structures.

I pursued my doctoral studies in the Delft University of Technology working on Concurrent multiscale analysis of softening materials. I have also collaborated in the development of hierarchical multiscale techniques for the study of fracture phenomena. In July 2013 I joined the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) in Barcelona (Spain) as a Postdoctoral researcher working in the field of computational material design within the framework of the COMP-DES-MAT project (Advanced tools for computational design of engineering materials, ERC advanced grant) led by prof. J. Oliver. Since my incorporation at CIMNE I’ve contributed to the main axes of the COMP-DES-MAT project: multiscale, reduction and optimization techniques. I’ve been awarded a postdoctoral junior grant (Juan de la Cierva) and I’ve been PI of a national research plan project and researcher of two PoC (Proof of Concept) ERC grants and one national research plan project.

My current research lines are related to optimization procedures, model order reduction strategies and pre-computed material databases which are regarded key to transfer the computational material design technology to new emerging engineering fields such as the design of metamaterials.
