The Centre for Scientific Computing



I grew up in A Estrada, in the north west of Spain. I started my studies on Physics at "Universidad Autónoma de Madrid" in Spain in 2009 and finished on Imperial College London on 2013 through an Erasmus scholarship. I Enrolled the MPhil in Scientific Computing at the University of Cambridge in 2013. My current research is sponsored by British Petroleum and involves optimising oil localisation/extraction in areas of North Canada through simulations and analysis using C++ and high performance computing methods.
