I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at BCAM - Basque Center for Applied Mathematics. In 2016, I was awarded the La Caixa Fellowship Grant for my doctoral studies and in 2021 I obtained my Ph.D. degree with “Sobresaliente Cum Laude” distinction award from the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU.

My research interests are Machine Learning and Evolutionary Computations. I have been involved in many projects, belonging to different industrial sectors such as Aerospace Engineering and Maritime Industry. My activities mainly involve trajectory optimization, evolutionary computations, dynamics and control, numerical simulation, meta-heuristics, and software development for engineering simulation.

N-Bunker Project

This project is dedicated to the optimization of bunkering operations in ports in collaboration with Navozyme. The objective is to suggest an optimized estimated time of arrival (ETA) for incoming vessels, which are on their way to reach the port for refueling. The main goal is to develop an efficient framework for analyzing and optimizing the bunkering operations in such a way that the waiting time and the idle time of the vessels at arrival and departure become minimum (Learn More). The main steps in this project can ne summarized as:

  • AIS Data Preparation and Preprocessing
  • Analysis of the Bunkering Operations
  • Development of the Predictive Model
  • Estimation of Time of Arrival
  • Development of the Optimization Algorithm
  • Implementation and Test
