Research Projects


“Modern man is conditioned to expect instant gratification, but any success or triumph realised quickly, with only marginal effort, is necessarily shallow. Meaningful achievement takes time, hard work, persistence, patience, proper intent and self-awareness. The path to success is punctuated by failure, consolidation, and renewed effort.” (Mark Twight)

From the PhD days in France to the end of 2018, I’ve been involved in a number of projects funded by the European Commission (EC), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the French/Spanish Ministries of Science, certainly with different degrees of engagement, from having only the name on the research group to workpackage leader.
