Personal Background

David Cereceda, as a PhD candidate, worked with Jaime Marian at LLNL in the Computational and Material Science group starting in 2012. He received his 5 years diploma degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2010 and his Master in Nuclear Science and Technology in 2011, both from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. He participated in the CCMS Summer Institute in 2010. His graduate advisors are Prof. J.M. Perlado and Jaime Marian. His PhD research is focused on the multiscale simulation of Tungsten as a candidate for fusion applications.
