ICE women online talks
Researcher: Mar Mezcua; Laura Tolós; Helena Domínguez; Margarida Hernanz; Alice Borghese; Vanessa Graber; Estel Cardellach

Today, the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE, CSIC) wants to join the celebration of the International Women's Day.

Therefore, we have planned an online event for all the women working at ICE on March 12th (Friday). The female researchers and the female administration and communication staff will meet online to create a space for debate, so that women working in non-academic positions get to know better the work and research lines of the female scientists at our center. Our goal is to foster a virtual space where we can reach out each other and be more in sync.

In this way, we intend to increase visibility to female scientists at an internal level and promote sisterhood.

The event will be available in the near future on ICE's YouTube channel.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science
Researcher: Cristina Manuel Hidalgo; Nanda Rea ; Vanessa Graber; Helena Domínguez Sánchez ; Laura Tolós ; Mar Mezcua

To commemorate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, five female researchers from the Institute of Space Sciences will be part of the 100tífiques initiative organised by the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRi) and the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST). They will give online talks to primary and secondary school students in Catalonia about the work of a scientist and their experience as women in the field of science and research.
 
The female researchers who will participate in this initiative on February 11th are:
 
Cristina Manuel Hidalgo, a theoretical physicist. She is especially interested in the “condensed matter of the strong (or quantum chomodynamics) interactions” and she focuses on finding their signatures in astrophysical and cosmological scenarios. Her research lines are: quantum chromodynamics under extreme conditions; quark matter, and signatures in compact stars; quark-gluon plasma; and astroparticle.
 
Nanda Rea has a PhD in Astrophysics on neutron stars and black holes. She comes from Italy and has recently collaborated with Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRi) in the initiative #Path2Integrity toward an ethical innovation path in research. She is the main researcher of a Horizon 2020 COST action on neutron stars. She has focused on magnetars, neutron stars with high speed of rotation and extremely strong magnetic fields and she discovered the first magnetar with a weak magnetic field.
Last year she received an award in Science and Engineering from Banco Sabadell Foundation and an award from the Royal Academy of Sciences of Spain Foundation for Young Female Scientific Talent in 2019, among other awards.
 
Vanessa Graber, originally from Germany, is a theoretical astrophysicist and a senior postdoctoral researcher. She is a member of the European COST Action network PHAROS, which focuses on the multi-messenger physics and astrophysics of neutron stars. Her work is mainly focused on two research areas: the interface between astrophysics and condensed matter physics and the population synthesis of isolated neutron stars.
She currently works with Nanda Rea on the newly funded ERC project Magnesia, that focuses on providing a census of galactic magnetars: “Census of magnetars: the impact of highly magnetic neutron stars in the explosive and transitory universe”.
 
Helena Domínguez Sánchez is a research astronomer and post-doctoral fellow at ICE. Her work focuses on galaxy formation and evolution from an observational point of view. Her aim is to understand how and why the properties of galaxies have changed across the history of the Universe. During the last few years, she developed expertise in machine learning and she is pioneering the use of deep learning techniques in astronomy.

Laura Tolós is a physicist and researcher focused on the theoretical study of matter under conditions of extreme temperatura or density, such as those that can be observed in stellar objects, such as neutron stars. She is involved in the scientific design of the eXTP X-ray satellite, together with Nanda Rea, among other researchers.

In addition, next February 18th researcher Mar Mezcua will be one of the 75 astrophysicists available to talk about her research and her experience as a woman in science within the initiative "Chat with an astronomer" organised by the Women and Astronomy commission of the Spanish Astronomical Society (SEA) and sponsored by the Varela López Family in memory of Angelines and Arturo, and by the PureChat platform. Mar Mezcua is a postdoctoral researcher who studies how supermassive black holes form and grow and how this growth affects the galaxy itself.

"Chat with an Astronomer" 2021


Researcher: Mar Mezcua Pallerola

#11F: ICE researcher Mar Mezcua participates in the IV edition of "Chat with an Astronomer"
Researcher: Mar Mezcua Pallerola

El próximo 18 de febrero de 2020, de 10 de la mañana a 10 de la noche (horario de la Península Ibérica), tendrá lugar la IV edición de la actividad "Chatea con una Astrónoma" en el marco del 11 de febrero: Día Internacional de la Mujer y la Niña en Ciencia. Esta actividad está organizada por la Comisión Mujer y Astronomía de la Sociedad Española de Astronomía y patrocinada por la Familia Varela López en homenaje y recuerdo a Angelines y Arturo, y por la plataforma PureChat.

Mar Mezcua, del Instituto de Ciencias del Espacio (ICE, CSIC), formará parte del equipo de 75 astrofísicas españolas o trabajando en España que estarán disponibles para chatear sobre su investigación, su experiencia como mujeres científicas, la carrera investigadora o temas de astronomía general.

El objetivo principal de "Chatea con una Astrónoma" es acercar la ciencia actual al público general de mano de sus protagonistas femeninas, dando así visibilidad a su presencia y relevancia. "Chatea con una Astrónoma" es una actividad de divulgación única pues está al alcance de cualquiera que disponga de conexión a internet, independientemente de lo remota que sea su localización, y porque proporciona una plataforma directa y privada de conversación entre las astrofísicas profesionales y el público general. 

En la pasada edición de "Chatea con una Astrónoma" en febrero de 2020, las astrofísicas chateadoras atendimos más de 600 chats durante los que mantuvimos más de 200 horas de conversación. Durante 12 horas ininterrumpidas resolvimos dudas de adolescentes que se plantean elegir estudios universitarios de Física o Astrofísica, de progenitores a los que preocupa las dificultades que sus hijas encontrarán a lo largo de la carrera profesional, de peques que miran al cielo y quieren entender qué ven y de personas adultas de todas las edades cuyas ganas de aprender no han cesado.

El próximo 18 de febrero, ¡anímate a chatear con una astrónoma! Puedes hacerlo a través de los siguientes enlaces. Pero, ¡por favor!, si eres profesor/a y quieres conectarte con tu clase, te agradeceremos que abras un único chat por aula para así garantizar que podemos atender la mayor cantidad de chats posibles.

“DE SANT PETERSBURG A SANT CUGAT: CLOENDA D’UN ANY ATÍPIC I DE CONFERÈNCIES IMPORTANTS”


Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

CONFERÈNCIA ONLINE – CLOENDA ENTITAT
Researcher: Emilio Elizalde

Ha estat un any trasbalsat per la pandèmia. La Ciència ha seguit avançant però res ha estat el mateix. S’han fet grans conferències a distància, per internet. “The Greatest Physical Discoveries of the 20th Century”, HAPP Nobel Laureate discussion panel, St. Cross College, University of Oxford (July 31, 2020), on vaig intervenir amb una qüestió, congregà més de 3.000 científics a través del Zoom. Parlaré d’això i de què és i què representa la investigació científica en aquests temps difícils.

Estrelles de neutrons: un laboratori de matèria densa sota gravetat extrema


Researcher: Laura Tolos

Xerrada sobre estrelles de neutrons a la XIII Jornades de Relativitat a Terrassa
Researcher: Laura Tolos

Les estrelles de neutrons són un dels objectes astrofísics més compactes de l’univers. Per tant, són considerades un laboratori únic per provar les propietats fonamentals de la matèria en condicions extremes de densitat sota forts camps gravitatoris. En aquesta xerrada descriuré les propietats de la matèria a l'interior de les estrelles de neutrons i la seva relació amb la determinació de la massa i el radi d'aquests objectes compactes, així com l'emissió d'ones gravitatories, donant especial rellevància al paper que juga la gravetat en tot plegat.
