Universidad Politecnica Madrid

Partner description

Universidad Politecnica Madrid (UPM) is Spain largest technical university. Around 36,000 students are training on our 4+1 university campuses distributed across the city of Madrid. UPM also has several research centres and institutes.

UPM is a public university committed to and working towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set up by the United Nations General Assembly.

Role in the Project

Inside PULSE we are responsible for the simulation code developement, a specific code allowing to introduce the time and shape variation of the structures.
We participate in the analytical and numerical testing of the devices, providing model-order reduction techniques and numerical tools.

Team Members

SALVADOR JIMÉNEZ is an Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. His background is in Theoretical Physics. He received his PhD degree in Theoretical Physics from Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

His current research interests include Mathematical Modelling, Dynamical systems, Fractional Calculus and its applications, Numerical Techniques, Computational Linear Algebra and Optimization.

VALENTIN DE LA RUBIA received the Ingeniero de Telecomunicacion and Ph.D. degrees from the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Madrid, Spain, in 2003 and 2008, respectively. He joined UPM as an Assistant Professor in 2011 and has been an Associate Professor with UPM since 2014.

His research interests include computational electromagnetics and model-order reduction techniques, such as reduced-basis methods, for fast and reliable electromagnetic analysis, placing especial emphasis in the development of electromagnetic-based computer-aided design (CAD) tools.

He has been active in organizing convened sessions in international and national conferences, as well as an active reviewer for several journals: IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers, IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters and Journal of Computational Physics, to name a few.

The research results he has been working on along his academic career have given rise to a powerful CEM code for both EM analysis and EM design. Several research institutes, universities and companies are using this software for their research activities in close collaboration within his research group at UPM.

M. PILAR VELASCO is an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics for Information and Communication Technologies at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (Madrid, Spain). She has participated in 10 research projects (1 as PI), 3 research groups, 2 research institutes and 1 research network, all of them related to applied mathematics, and she has been member of the organizing committees of 15+ relevant conferences in the field of applied mathematics. Also, she has published 35+ papers in international journals and conference proceedings and her works have received 350+ citations (h-index 11).

Her current research topics include Mathematical Modelling of anomalous and real processes with regard to Nonlinearity, through Fractional Calculus, Integro-Differential Operators and Equations, Nonlinear Dynamics, Mathematical Modeling, Operators Theory.
