Pablo Prieto holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a M.S. in Industrial Mathematics from the University Carlos III of Madrid. Throughout his programs, he worked as an aeronautic design engineer in CT Ingenieros (2017-2018); and as an undergraduated research fellow under the supervision of Prof. César Huete, studying numerically the shock waves in confined spaces (2019). He is currently a PhD Candidate (estimated in June/2024) under the supervision of Prof. Marcos Vera.

Research interests

Pablo's research interests adresses mass, charge and heat transport phenomena taking place in the RFBs, using modeling, numerical analysis and experiments. In particular, his research focuses on the electrolyte mixing inside the tanks of RFBs.
