The new faces at the institute. Welcome, everyone!
Sílvia FarràsSílvia Farràs is a Mechanical Engineer and Astrophysicist currently working on the LISA project, specifically in the analysis of magnetic and temperature sensor measurements providing high stability and accuracy. For this purpose, she focuses on achieving the optimal mechanical configuration to carry out these scientific experiments.
Sascha HusaSascha Husa is a Faculty member whose research focuses on modelling the gravitational wave signals emitted by coalescing compact binaries, and the use of such models for gravitational wave data analysis with current and future gravitational wave detectors.
Daniel Herencia is a Telecommunications Engineer currently working on the Mirror project, which aims to measure Deep Soil Moisture from Drones. His role within the team is to design, implement and validate the dual band RF front-end and electronic circuits.
Zahra Baghkhani is a PhD student with a focus on cosmology and large scale structure of the Universe. Her current research centers on creating galaxy mock catalogues within cosmological simulations. These catalogues play a pivotal role in preparing and analyzing large galaxy surveys, helping to address fundamental questions about our Universe.
Eduard Aguilar is currently working as an Embedded Systems Engineer within the Mirror Project team. In this role, he is primarily responsible for the development of firmware and VHDL modules. These components are designed to assure the data acquisition and processing, thereby ensuring the accurate functioning of the sensing equipment.
Arshad Karimbu Vallappil
Arshad Karimbu Vallappil, an expert in RF Electronics Engineering, is involved in the MIRROR project, which focuses on measuring deep soil moisture from drones. Within our team, Arshad will be responsible for the design and development of dual-band passive reflectometry system.
Cristina Pino Mera is responsible for project justification and she's in charge of the Latin American Chinese European Galaxy Formation Network (LACEGAL) project. She also supports the administration unit of the institute.
