Norberto is a PhD from the Department of Aeronautics working in the Loads Control and Aeroelasticity Lab from October 2018 to June 2022. His research interest lies in the simulation and modelling of very flexible aircraft including data-driven strategies, and implements his research on the in-house open source tool, SHARPy. He is also very interested in implementing robust machine learning methods to obtain forecasts and predictions of dynamical systems.

Prior to the PhD, he graduated in Aeronautical Engineering MEng with First Class Honours from Imperial College. During his undergraduate time, he spent a year working at Airbus Landing Gear in Filton and two summers at IberEspacio, a satellite thermal control firm, in Madrid.

He holds a Private Pilot Licence (FAA and EASA) and, whenever he is back home, makes the most out of the beautiful Spanish weather flying a Cessna 172. He is also an avid triathlete, member of the Imperial College Triathlon Club and Ironman finisher.
