Pablo is a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC). Before coming to MIT to get his doctoral degree in Nuclear Science and Engineering, Pablo majored in Industrial Engineering at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University. He worked as a research fellow at Politecnico di Milano on turbine optimization via machine learning techniques, which resulted in an award-winning master thesis. His research at the PSFC focuses on fusion energy and plasma physics, particularly on energy transport in tokamaks. Fusion has the potential to provide clean, sustainable, safe and unlimited energy to the world. Towards this goal, Pablo currently works on the physics basis and optimization of SPARC, the first fusion experiment that will generate net energy. During his doctoral thesis research (defended in April 2019), Pablo wrote 5 first-author peer-reviewed journal articles, including a high-impact Physical Review Letter. In this work, Pablo solved a 20-year-old mystery in plasma physics that had been challenging the prediction of future reactors. In 2018, Pablo was awarded the Manson Benedict award (MIT) for academic excellence and professional promise, and the Young Engineer (UPM) early career achievement award.
