EDUCATION
Fernando Hernández Jiménez started his mechanical engineering studies at the Universidad Carlos III in 2003. After obtaining his degree in 2007 at University Carlos III, he obtained his Master in Thermal and Fluids Engineering in 2009. His formation has continued with a research stay at the ETH Zurich, working with Prof. Christoph R. Müller during the summer of 2010, autumn of 2011 and 2012. Fernando obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in October 2013.
