Meet Our PhD Students Series

Today for the series “Meet our PhD students” the lucky ones whose projects they are involved in, their stays and their publications we will find out about are:

Enrique Bello

His work is supervised by Eduardo Ahedo Galilea.
His excellent contribution concentrates on the project “PROMETEO – Propulsión por plasma y fusión nuclear: innovando el transporte espacial“ and in the context of his thesis, a full particle-in-cell model is developed to analyse instabilities and turbulence in the axial and azimuthal directions.

Diego García Lahuerta

His PhD is supervised by Mario Merino and his contribution is fundamental in the development and progress of the “ZARATHUSTRA-ERC Starting Grant 2020 “project. His interesting thesis work focuses on the investigation of the equilibrium and stability of plasma flow in cylindrical and magnetic arc EPTs by making use of a two- and three-dimensional multifluid plasma simulation code, which will be designed and developed as part of the research effort.

Victor Gómez García

His PhD is supervised by Pablo Fajardo. His participation is essential in the project “HelIcon Plasma thruster for In-space Applications“. His doctoral research aims to further the technological development of the Helicon Plasma Thruster.

Marco Riccardo Inchingolo

His PhD is supervised by Mario Merino and Jaume Navarro Cavalle.
His contribution is important in the project “PROMETEO – Propulsión por plasma y fusión nuclear: innovando el transporte espacial” and his thesis focuses on the iterative design of an electron resonance plasma thruster (ECRT).

Davide Maddaloni

Mario Merino and Filippo Terragni supervise their thesis.Their collaboration in the project “Mare Terra – Resolving anomalous transport in Hall-effect plasma engines using robust data-driven modal analysis techniques” is of fundamental importance. His thesis experimentally investigates turbulence and plasma transport in Hall thrusters by applying state-of-the-art data-driven analysis algorithms.
