Jesús Bonilla holds a degree in mechanical engineering and a MSc in numerical methods in engineering both by the Technical University of Catalonia, UPC. In 2019, he received his PhD in computational mechanics also from the Technical University of Catalonia, UPC. Since September 2014, he is a researcher at the Large Scale Scientific Computing team at CIMNE. His main research interst is the development of stabilization methods for finite element solvers for fluid models of plasma. He is focused in the development of positivity-preserving schemes for hyperbolic problems integrated implicitly in time. 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.
