Daniel Garcia Lozano obtained the degree of Mechanical Engineering at the National University of Colombia in 2010. After that, he studied an MSc. in Mechanical Engineering where he developed a computational framework to analyze the air pollution dispersion in Bogotá city. Simultaneously he became a member of the modeling and numerical methods group (GNUM), where he worked in estimate life expectancy of vehicles parts and analyzed the loads applied at inlet pipes in water pumps. Daniel continued his studies at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia where he became part of the Numerical Porous Media Center (NUMPOR), while he completed a second MSc. in Mechanical Engineering. During that time he helped in developing a computational framework to predict incompressible fluids by an Isogeometric divergence-free approach. Also, he worked in optimizing a framework employed to study the dynamics of lifting bodies, e.g., the flight of birds and paper airplanes. From February 2015 to June 2018 he was a Ph.D. student in the "Department of Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research" at the University of the Basque Country under the supervision of David Pardo and Victor M. Calo from Curtin University (Australia). During the Ph.D. work, he developed a solver-based discretization, called refined isogeometric analysis, that selects the continuity of the basis functions used by Galerkin-based methods to build the discrete representation of the numerical problems. This approach optimizes the performance of direct solvers and reduces the total computational cost, both in terms of time and memory. Since June 2018, Daniel Garcia is a Post-Doctoral fellow at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM).
