Manuel Soler


Associate Professor at UC3M

Manuel Soler, Associate Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at UC3M, I am Director of the Doctoral Program in Aerospace Engineering and member of the research group in Aerospace Engineering, from where I lead the UC3M Aeronautical Operations Laboratory. He has been visiting scholar at the ETH Zürich and the U.C. Berkeley. I am currently developing two lines of research: 1) the application of artificial intelligence techniques to problems related to aeronautical meteorology, air traffic and climate change; 2) the optimization of aircraft trajectories and climate change. Since I joined UC3M, I am or have been PI of 12 competitive projects (7 European, 2 of them as coordinator) and he is directing 13 doctoral theses. He published more than 30 JCR articles, 3 book chapters and more than 50 articles in conference proceedings, many of these publications in international collaboration. He has a marked vocation for communication and transfer of results, highlighting: the open ClimaCCF library, developed within the framework of FlyATM4E and ALARM SESAR projects; the dissemination activities at Researchers' Night and/or Science Week; the dissemination of the results of the ALARM and START SESAR projects, which I have coordinated, and which include videos, radio interviews and press releases translated into several languages; and, finally, the creation of Start Up Intel-Met, in the process of being formalized as a UC3M Spin-Off.
