  • Brief Bio

    I obtained my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Barcelona in October 2009. Thesis: "Contributions to the Dynamics of a Solar Sail in the Earth-Sun System", under the supervision of Prof. Angel Jorba.

    In 2008 I participated in an Ariadna Project by ESA with other researchers from the University of Barcelona, the project was "Efficient Usage of Self Validated Integrators for Space Applications".

    As a post-doctoral research fellow I have been at:

    - Observaroire de Paris working with Prof. Laskar (October 2010 - August 2012).

    - University of Bourgogne working with Jean-Baptiste Caillau (September 2012 - September 2013)

    - University of Barcelona working with the Dynamical System group (October 2013 - October 2015)

    - Goddard Space Flight Center collaborating with Dave Folta (May 2016 - September 2016)


    Currently, I am a research fellow at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and the Goddard Planetary Heliophysics Institute. I collaborate with the Roman Space Telescope and the James Webb Space Telescope, modeling the Solar Radiation Pressure (SRP) accelerations and its effect on the orbital dynamics and station keeping delta-v. Using dynamical system tools to plan efficient station keeping maneuvers and understand how different perturbations affect the total delta-v to remain in the science orbit.


    My main lines of research are: orbital dynamics and control at Libration point orbits. My research focuses on the studied of how the phase space of the Restricted Three Body Problem is affected by the acceleration of a solar sail. Understanding how it changes as a function of the sail parameters (reflectivity and orientation) has enables me to developed station keeping strategies taking advantage of the dynamical structure of the system. Allowing a solar sail to remain close to a unstable equilibrium points and periodic orbits.
