David E. Bernal Neira joined the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) at the NASA Ames Research Center under the NASA Academic Mission Service contract in July 2021. He was part of the Feynman Quantum Academy Fellowship from QuAIL and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) in 2019. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University with Ignacio E. Grossmann. Before that, he received a M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering, and a B.Sc. in Physics and a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. His current research lies at the intersection of chemical and process systems engineering, optimization methods, and quantum computing.
