About

I obtained my PhD in 2009 from the Civil Engineering School of UPC-BarcelonaTech, ranked 23rd in the world in the field of Civil and Structural Engineering, after obtaining my 5-year degree from the UPC School of Mathematics, ranked first in Spain for over a decade. During this period I received three awards from the European Association for Computational Methods in Applied Sciences, the Spanish Association for Computational Methods in Engineering and the publisher Birkhauser-Verlag for the best thesis in Spain and Europe. In 2009 I moved to Swansea, to work in the renowned Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering as a post-doctoral research assistant and I became faculty member in 2012. Since then, I have received a number of honours and awards from the publisher EMERALD and the Welsh government.

I am the current President of the UK Association for Computational Mechanics and I also hold a number of positions in the European Association for Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and the International Association for Computational Mechanics.

Career Highlights

Teaching Interests

My teaching is closely related to my research. I teach problem solving in Engineering using programming for undergraduate Year 2 Civil Engineering students and Finite Element Computational Analysis to postgraduate students in the MEng Civil Engineering, MEng Aerospace Engineering, MSc in Civil Engineering, MSc in Aerospace Engineering, MSc in Computational Engineering and the International MSc in Computational Mechanics.

I am also responsible for the Research Dissertation module of the International MSc in Computational Mechanics and the Visiting Research Dissertation module offered to exchange students.

I am currently the coordinator of the international International MSc in Computational Mechanics (formerly Erasmus Mundus) and Year 2 Coordinator of the Civil Engineering degree.
