Short BIO

Patricia Vega Martínez completed her Bachelor of Industrial Engineering at Universidad de León in 2011, specializing in Mechanics. During her studies, she studied Vilniaus Gedimino Tecknickos Universitetas for one year.

Then, she moved to Madrid and obtained her Master of Industrial Engineering at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2014. At the same time, she started to work at the International Services in UC3M. Afterwards, she joined the Technical Department of Construction of Elecnor S.A . Then, she got an internship position in Red Eléctrica de España.

Patricia is currently doing his PhD under the supervision of prof. Javier Rodríguez Rodríguez. Her PhD focuses on two main research lines: the experimental investigation of diffusion-driven growth of bubbles in microgravity conditions and of the water-exit problem.
