Luis Cadarso Morga


Aerospace Engineering

Short Bio

Dr. Luis Cadarso is Associate Professor (Contratado Doctor) at Rey Juan Carlos University, where he teaches courses in flight mechanics, control systems, and air transport optimization, and where he is currently supervising 3 Ph.D. students. His research interests focus on two main fields, aerospace engineering and transport engineering, with application to Navigation, Guidance and Control of aerial platforms, and Air and Rail Transport and Airport Operations optimisation, respectively.
Dr. Luis Cadarso has published more than 10 research paper in indexed journals, leaded 1 and participated in more than 15 competitive research projects, leaded 5 contracts with private companies, and presented more than 40 talks in international conferences. He has served as reviewer for many international scientific journals such as Aerospace Science & Technology, Transportation Science, Transportation Research Part E, Transportation Research Part C, and Computers & Operations Research). His research reviewer expertise includes referring research projects for the European Union at HORIZON2020 programme and for national research certification agencies such as ACIE and EQA.
Dr. Luis Cadarso has collaborated with international research centers such as the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, the Instituto de Ingeniería de la UNAM in Mexico, the Rotterdam School of Management, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Pontificia Universidad Católica in Chile. His work has been awarded at several forums: finalist at the EURO Doctoral Award 2015, Extraordinary Doctorate Award at the Technical University of Madrid (academic year 2012-13), Best Master Thesis Award at the Cátedra Abertis-UPC and Award to a research paper at the Railway Application Section, INFORMS.
