My research activity is in the areas of general fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, and combustion. I am interested in the modeling and analysis of the processes based on analytical, multiple-scales, and asymptotic techniques, and also in their numerical analysis.

In the area of combustion, I focus on the description of the structure, ignition, and extinction of premixed and diffusion flames and in the combustion of sprays. I am also involved with modeling of NOx and CO production in premixed and unpremixed combustion systems.

My primary appointment is at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Aeronáuticos, (UPM), in Madrid.
