In July 2019, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the Polytechnical University of Valencia (UPV). Then, in July 2021, I finished my MSc in Aerospace Engineering at UPV. During my Bachelor’s and Master’s studies, I had the privilege of conducting my final projects at the I2MB-UPV, where I focused on numerical simulations and optimization techniques.

In November 2020, I started my PhD at I2MB-UPV, granted by Ayudas para la Formación del Profesorado Universitario (FPU2019). The title of my PhD thesis is “Development of numerical methodologies for the design of personalized bioabsorbable implants for reconstructive surgery”, and my supervisors are Juan José Ródenas and Enrique Nadal. These methodologies will automatically create personalized implants for major reconstructive surgeries using 3D medical imaging data. The implants will be optimized to achieve minimal weight while maintaining the necessary functionality throughout the healing process, considering the structural behaviour of bioabsorbable materials. My research encompasses various areas, including patient-specific numerical simulations based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), callus healing models, and the application of Machine Learning (ML) techniques to the topology optimization (TO) process.

Throughout my academic career, I have actively participated in 5 international congresses of computational mechanics and have been involved in 5 research projects. In the coming months, we anticipate publishing several journal papers on patient-specific numerical methodologies, focusing on studying the interaction of gait conditions and implant materials in the bone healing process and a ML-based TO process.
