  • artal-pablo

    Artal, Pablo

    He was born in Zaragoza (Spain) where he studied Physics at the University of Zaragoza. In 1984, he moved to Madrid with a pre-doctoral fellowship to work at the CSIC “Instituto de Optica” under the supervision of Javier Santamaria. He was a post-doctoral research fellow, first at Cambridge University (UK) and later at the Institut d’Optique in Orsay, France. After his return to Spain, he obtained a permanent researcher position at the Instituto de Optica (CSIC) in Madrid. In 1994, he became the first full Professor of Optics at the University of Murcia, Spain where he founded his “Laboratorio de Optica”. He spent periods sabbatical years in Rochester (USA) and Sydney (Australia). He is currently distinguished visiting professor at the Central South University in Changsha, China.

  • moya-de-guerra-elvira

    Moya de Guerra, Elvira

    Elvira pioneered the field of Theoretical Nuclear Physics in Spain, and more generally the area of Physics: Science and Technology as she was the first woman physicist to gain a university full professor position in 1982 in a complex context, competing with eight male colleagues, with her as the only woman and winner. Her unquestionable pioneering role in Spain and her leadership in Nuclear Physics have been recognized in Spain and abroad. She has been the first theoretical physicist to work under a scientific research contract at the Center for Theoretical Physics and at the Laboratory for Nuclear Science in MIT (USA). She was also the first woman to become a member of the Board of Directors of ECT* (European Center for Theoretical Physics and related Areas) and of NuPEEC (Nuclear Physics European Coordination Committee). Also Elvira has been the first woman scientist in Spain to obtain two prestigious national and international recognitions: APS Fellow (USA), elected among european members of the American Physical Society (2005), Medal RSEF-BBVA Foundation (2008), gold medal of the Royal Spanish Physics Society.
