Do you want to know more about the research being carried out at NASA? What if you can also listen to the testimony and trajectory of two Spaniards who have participated in them?

In the Rafael del Pino Club of Scientists, we want to consolidate a community of young Spanish scientists with our values ​​of excellence in STEM sciences. Also, we seek to share opportunities and discuss current technological applications.

Therefore, we are going to start a series of thematic meetings to inspire young people who want to dedicate themselves to these areas as well as connect young scientists who are currently developing their research careers in them.

In this first meeting, we will talk about astrophysics and research at NASA. If you dedicate yourself to this field, let us know in the registration as there will be an opportunity to be in contact!

In this talk, we will have the following speakers:

Jordi Vila: studied Telecommunications Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the Master in Telecommunications Engineering at the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique de Toulouse. Since 2014, he has developed several projects at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. He developed the telemetry system for a telescope that aims to study star formation. He has also led the electrical system development of the High-resolution Mid-infrared Spectrometer, a telescope that aims to find regions outside of the solar system that are developing planets that may support life.

José López: studied Energy Engineering and a Master’s degree in Nuclear and Particle Physics at the University of Vigo. In 2018, he began working in the field of Plasma Physics in Space in the context of the NASA Magnetospheric Multi-Scale mission. In his work there, he focused on wave-particle interactions, turbulence, and anomalous dissipation of the earth’s magnetosphere.
