Felipe Cruz (PhD 2011)
Felipe Cruz was a visiting student in Bristol, UK, from Sept. 2006 to July 2007, under a grant from Prof. Barba's EC-funded project "Scientific Computing Advanced Training, SCAT". At the time, he was a MSc student in computer engineering from Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, in Valparaíso, Chile.
He became Prof. Barba's PhD student in 2007 at Bristol University. His research was funded by a grant to Barba from BAE Systems & Airbus UK. Felipe graduated in 2011 with a PhD in Applied Mathematics.
After graduating, Felipe went to work as postdoctoral researcher at the Nagasaki Advanced Computing Center, under the supervision of Prof. Tsuyoshi Hamada. He finished his position there in July 2013, when he took a position as lead researcher in Square Enix (the Japanese video game company).
