Queridos compañeros, la ACES os invita a nuestro próximo evento digital, un webinario con el título “Ingenieria Nuclear: Retos y Promesas, el miércoles 16 de junio a las 18:00 por Zoom (proporcionaremos el enlace al evento el día anterior).
Pablo Rodriguez Fernandez
Postdoc at MIT and one of the “30 under 30” at Forbes in 2021
Doctor of Philosophy in Nuclear Science and Engineering, MIT 2019. Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Drexel University, 2014. Master thesis project at Politecnico di Milano, 2015. Ingeniero Técnico Superior Industrial Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, 2013.
I am a research scientist at the Plasma Science and Fusion Center from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My professional goal is to do my bit towards fighting climate change and the energy crisis from a technical and scientific perspective. Fusion energy is a very promising technology and I am devoting my career to the better understanding and prediction of the core of fusion devices. I primarily work on the SPARC tokamak project, but I am also involved in research studies of the US Department of Energy at the ASDEX Upgrade, Alcator C-Mod , DIII-D and JET tokamaks. My expertise lies in tokamak integrated modeling and scenario optimization, at the intersection between experiment and theory, with a focus on core energy transport.Honors and AwardsForbes 30 Under 30 honoree in Science for 2021, Del Favero Doctoral Thesis Prize for the most innovative advance in the field.
