Jesús Bonilla holds a degree in mechanical engineering and a MSc in numerical methods in engineering both by the Technical University of Catalonia, UPC. Since September 2014, he is a predoctoral researcher at the Large Scale Scientific Computing team at CIMNE. The objective of his PhD is to develop efficient finite element solvers for fluid models of plasma. He is focused in the development of monotonicity-preserving schemes for hyperbolic problems. He aims to apply these schemes to one and two-fluid magnetohydrodynamic equations. Which model problems of interest in fusion reactors design. All his research is done by developing the LSSC in-house code, FEMPAR, a massively parallel finite element Fortran library.
