  • Brief Bio

    I obtained her PhD in Mathematics by 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 she has 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)

    My main research line is orbital dynamics and control for Solar Sails. Having studied in detail the effect that thee solar sail parameters have on the dynamics of the Earth-Sun Restricted Three Body Problem. Developed station keeping strategies (using dynamical system tools) allow a solar sail to remain close to a unstable equilibrium points and periodic orbits.

    Currently I am a research fellow at the University of Maryland Baltimore City and the Goddard Planetary Heliophysics Institute collaborating on Solar Radiation Pressure modeling for the WFIRST mission.
