De la Torre, David

Department of Physics. Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Spain. My BSc is in Aerospace Engineering and I am currently finishing my PhD at UPC. I have been working as Visiting Researcher at the European Space Operation Center (ESOC), and participated in the CDF studies of Ice Giants and L-BEAM, and I have carried out the implementation of a low-thrust method for trajectory design. I have worked as a researcher at the Institute for Space Studies of Catalonia participating in the feasibility study of ESA’s Small Mars Satellite. I am highly interested in space research and mission design, numerical methods applied to engineering, distributed computing, and software engineering in general.
