BiographyPrior to my PhD study in the CoMo group I obtained a B.Sc and M.Sc in Chemical Engineering at the National University of Colombia. I worked with biodiesel andethanol combustion. I joined the CoMo group in 2011 and became a member of St. Edmunds College at the University of Cambrige. My PhD has been generously funded by COLCIENCIAS (Administrative Department of Science, Technology and Innovation of Colombia). My research interests are combustion with enphasis in soot formation in laminar flames. I am also interested in biofuels combustion
