The MIT Kavli Institute paves the way for new developments in space- & ground-based astrophysics. Our faculty, research staff, and students develop technology & instrumentation with a focus on an engineering and technical core.
Researchers at The Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research explore extreme and unusual phenomena found beyond the Earth including extrasolar planets, black holes, neutron stars, and distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
I grew up in Barcelona, Spain, where I got my Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. Later on, I moved to Toulouse to study aerospace engineering. My previous research has been mainly focused on structural dynamics and vibrations. I love travelling and playing sports.
I am currently interested in precision engineering systems and applied controls, and more particularly applied to the gravitational wave detectors. As a graduate student in the LIGO group, my research will likely involve the design; test and implementation of subsystems of the aLIGO detector to improve its performances.
