Juncal is a PhD candidate in Applied Mathematics at MIT. Previously, she obtained her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Industrial Engineering at the UNAV (Spain). Broadly speaking, her research revolves around the design of optimal decentralized controllers and estimators for large-scale and spatially-distributed dynamical systems subject to uncertainty. Often, she finds inspiration in biology to come up with novel problem formulations and design methodologies. Outside her research, she enjoys science outreach, encouraging womxn to pursue STEM careers and running/fitness. During her PhD, she was part of the Graduate Women at MIT (GWAMIT) executive board and the President of Spain@MIT.
