Idoia Cortes Garcia obtained her Bachelor in mathematics in 2014 and her Master in modelling for science and engineering in 2015 from the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
Currently she is working as a research assistant, as well as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Sebastian Schöps at the Institute for Accelerator Science and Electromagnetic Fields of the Technische Universität Darmstadt. She is part of the workgroup Computational Electromagnetics and her research is part of the STEAM project, where, in cooperation with research institutions such as CERN or PSI, she works on the development of numerical methods and analysis of the quench simulation of accelerator magnets. The setting yields a multi-physical, multi-rate and multi-scale problem, which is resolved with co-simulation techniques. Her research focuses on the analysis of the coupled models that are involved in terms of their differential algebraic equations index as well as efficient (co-)simulation techniques such as the waveform relaxation method or the parallel-in-time method Parareal.
