During his Master studies, Ignacio worked in the computational design of low power wind turbines, performing fluid dynamics simulations and inverse designs. Then, during his PhD in Computational Mechanics, his focu shifted to the computational design of materials, where he implemented an optimization methodology to design metamaterials and metadevices for heat flux manipulations, achieving devices for cloaking and heat flux concentration. Then, this methodology was extended to design also mechanical metamaterials. Presently he is working in the computational design/modeling of highly insulation cement-based materials for building envelopes.
