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:

Alejandro Cano Sanchéz

His doctorate is developed in the framework of industrial doctorates with the company GMV Aerospace and Defence. His supervisor at UC3M is Joaquín Míguez Arenas. His interesting work mainly focuses on modelling uncertainty in dynamical models and its effect on the orbit of objects around the Earth, such as Earth’s atmospheric drag or solar radiation pressure.

Amin Jafarimoghaddam

His work is supervised by Manuel Soler .
His excellent contribution is concentrated in the project “START – a Stable and resilient ATM by integrating Robust airline operations into the neTwork” and his work seeks satisfactory analytical/metatheoretical techniques compatible with the complex optimal control problems arising from Trajectory Optimisation.

Pedro Jiménez

His PhD is supervised by Mario Merino and  Eduardo Ahedo Galilea. His participation is essential in the projects “PROMETEO – Propulsión por plasma y fusión nuclear: innovando el transporte espacial” and “HelIcon Plasma thruster for In-space Applications“. The aim of his work is to develop advanced simulation tools for studying the propagation of electromagnetic waves through magnetised plasma.

Alberto Modesti

His PhD is supervised by Eduardo Ahedo Galilea, Fillippo Cichocki and Jiewei Zhou. His participation is essential in the project “PROMETEO – Propulsión por plasma y fusión nuclear: innovando el transporte espacial“. His research aims to extend both the physical models and numerical capabilities of EP2PLUS, a three-dimensional simulator of energy plumes emitted by space-based plasma thrusters.

Davide Poli

His PhD is supervised by  Pablo Fajardo and Eduardo Ahedo Galilea. His participation is essential in the projects “ESPEOS: Electric Space Propulsion for Satellites in Earth Orbit” and
SIMTURB: Simulación Numérica de la Turbulencia en Propulsión Espacial Eléctrica: Sinergias con Plasmas de Fusión“. The aim of his work is to develop advanced 2D fluid models of the Hall Effect Thruster (HET).
