Personal profile


Fusion energy may be the energy of the future, for which we need to work today

Research profile

Carlos is a PhD candidate at the Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion group in the Applied Physics department of Eindhoven University of Technology. Decided to work in a large scale project, Carlos became fascinated by the multidisciplinary approach of fusion energy research. He is focused on plasma physics, the framework of fusion energy research, which combines multiple branches of physics. His PhD topic focuses on the effects of the interaction of plasma microinstabilities and saturation mechanisms, particularly for stellarator geometies.

Academic background

Carlos obtained his engineering degree in applied physics from the Universidad Autónoma Metroploitana, in Mexico City. He worked in collaboration with the Università di Pisa and Tri Alpha Energy on spectroscopic diagnostics after his undergraduate studies. Afterwards, he obtained his MSc degree from the University of York, in England, where he also gained experience at the Culham Centre for Fusion Enegy, in Oxfordshire. His doctoral topic is being now developed in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for plasma physics in Greifswald, Germany, where the world's largest stellarator device is located.
