Marc Puche

Me

My name is Marc Puche Niubó and I am from Barcelona, Spain. For simplicity I decided to use only my first surname. I was born in April 1990 and I liked mathematics ever since I can remember. After middle school I decided to specialize in natural sciences during my high school years, immersing myself into Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

When having to decide what I wanted to study, I found out about a new Bachelor’s program, a double degree in Physics and Mathematics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I got accepted, starting September 2008. My interest for Applied Mathematics brought me to do my Bachelor thesis on something I had not done during my years at college, so I decided to take a glance at the world of Financial Mathematics and did my thesis on the Black-Scholes model for European options on two assets.

In July 2013 I was done with my undergraduate studies and decided to look for something new and challenging, so I decided to relocate in Hamburg, Germany, in order to learn German language, find a job and perhaps continue with my studies there. In September 2013 I settled down and started working at SANDEMANs New Europe GmbH, while learning German intensively. In December, that same year I applied to the master’s degree in Mathematics at the Universität Hamburg and got accepted, starting with the summer semester in April 2014.

After two years at SNE and having gathered a lot of experience, and being about to write my master thesis, I decided to try again something different and started working as a tutor teaching problems of a subject of Mathematics for Physicists at the Universität Hamburg.

In January 2016 following my personal interest in Fluid Dynamics I contacted Dr. Mellado at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, who hired me as a scientific assistant in the department of Atmosphere and Turbulent Mixing Processes, where we work in the field of turbulence in the convective boundary layer. We derived results to recover the moisture scalar field by using a linear convination of the buoyancy and a second passive scalar field. The results are presented in the paper Moisture statistics in free convective boundary layers growing into linearly stratified atmospheres.

I conluded my Master’s thesis in October 2016 on the topic differential-algebraic equations with an insight to differential-algebraic systems. Part of the thesis has become a paper which will be published soon.

After finishing my Master’s degree I continued at the Universität Hamburg doing my Ph.D. in applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Timo Reis, where I started in November 2016. The topic of my disertation is adaptive control for hyperbolic systems, and so far I have proved that the funnel controller is applicalble to infinite-dimensional port-Hamiltonian systems.
