Ruben is currently a research assistant in the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. He currently works on modelling problems related to electrochemical energy storage systems, such as lithium-ion batteries.

Ruben completed his PhD in the Applied Maths and Mathematical Physics section of the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London, supervised by Prof. Demetrios T. Papageorgiou and Prof. Greg Pavliotis, focussing on the nonlinear dynamics and control of interfacial flows.
