Vocación / motivación
I find it stimulating for the mind to dig deep into a subject and to investigate over things that have never been researched before. It is a continuous learning process.

Grupo de investigación y líneas de investigación
I am mainly working with my supervisor @ UPV/EHU and with the other my supervisor @ MINES ParisTech, in which there exist a research group highly involved in the kind of research that I am doing. My focus is in the numerical modelling of not-classical material behavior.
The organizers of the whole ENABLE project, thanks to the dense network of collaborations characterizing this framework, planned a period of cumulative 10 months of secondments. This gave me large exposure to both academia and companies and it will be extremely useful to me for my future choices.
My projects is to develop a theory that can be used to simulate manufacturing operations on metal alloys. The classical theories (which are successfully used for many other applications) fail to deliver reliable simulations in particular conditions of high temperatures and body deforming too fast. After developing such theory, I will implement it into a software to indeed simulate the manufacturing operations.
Mirando al futuro…
As I said earlier, the large amount of exposure to both academia and industy gave the chance to decide in which direction I would like to steer my career. I hope to make a difference with my research and to pass on what I learned to future researchers and, in order to do so, joining a career in academia would be my best fit.
