Aircraft noise and aeroacoustics             

I was born in Burgos (Spain) in 1991. I studied Aerospace Engineering (BSc and MSc) in Madrid Polytechnical University and performed my MSc thesis at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. I have recently defended my PhD at TU Delft and obtained a cum laude. My research topics are aeroacoustics and aircraft and wind turbine noise. I am very interested in technology and engineering advances. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball and watching stand-up comedy. 

FameLab entry reasons 
I have always been quite shy for presenting in front of an audience but, since I started my PhD I have worked hard for improving my presentation skills. I followed some courses and attended several conferences. I believe that FameLab is the perfect chance for me to continue improving in a more professional and dedicated environment. Previous experience: two pitching competitions for PhDs in my faculty and several scientific conferences.
