PhD in Mathematics (Universidad de Cantabria, 2003), associate professor of applied mathematics at the Universidad de Alcalá. His main research interests are Discrete and Computational Geometry, Graph Theory, and their applications to other fields.

Image of Daniel Marino

Daniel Marino got his PhD in Biological Sciences in the Public University of Navarra (UPNA). After a 5-year postdoctoral period in France he is now an Ikerbasque Reseach Fellow in the Plant Biology and Ecology Department of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). His research is focused on the plant response to environmental changes (biotic and abiotic)

Image of Francisco R. Villatoro

MSc Computer Science (University of Málaga, 1992), MSc Physics (UNED, 1993), PhD Mathematics (University of Málaga, 1998). Associate professor of computer science and artificial intelligence at the faculty of engineering of the University of Málaga. His research interests are applied mathematics and computational physics with a focus on non linear waves.

Image of Carlos Romá-Mateo

Carlos Romá-Mateo holds a PhD in molecular biology. He has worked in signal transduction pathways regulated by protein phosphatases and involved in cell proliferation, glycogen metabolism and protein degradation. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of the University of Valencia, where he studies the physiopathology of rare diseases in which oxidative stress and epigenetic factors play a crucial role.

Image of Rafael Medina

Rafael Medina is Assistant Professor of Biology at Augustana College (Illinois, USA). He earned his Ph.D. at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Connecticut. His research experience focuses on the taxonomy, phylogenetics, and phylogenomics of bryophytes, but he is also interested in the broad study of biodiversity and science communication.

Image of Carlos Casanueva

Carlos Casanueva is an Assistant Professor in Rail Vehicle Technology at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, and member of the ECO2 Centre for Vehicle Design. He obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2010 at the University of Navarra studying the dynamic behaviour of variable gauge wheelsets for high speed trains, and studied the optimization of wheel profiles for freight vehicles during his postdoctoral period at KTH. His main research interests are wheel and rail damage, active suspension systems and improvement of freight operations focused on sustainability.

Image of Jorge Mejías

Jorge Mejías received his MSc in Physics and PhD in Computational neuroscience from the University of Granada. After working as a postdoc at the Centre for Neural Dynamics of the University of Ottawa (Canada) he is currently at the Center for Neural Science of New York University.

Image of Isabel Perez Castro

Isabel Pérez-Castro obtained her PhD in chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela where she completed her thesis on the synthesis of non-natural nucleosides. She then moved to the UK where she has worked in tuberculosis drug discovery at the University of Cambridge, as well as in cancer drug research at Queen Mary, University of London and the Bart's Institute of Cancer. She is now focused on new drug discovery at Magnus Life Science, associated to the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research - UCL.
