"Now this is the peculiarity of scientific method, that when once it has become a habit of mind, that mind converts all facts whatsoever into science. The field of science is unlimited; its material endless, every group of natural phenomena, every phase of social life, every stage of past or present development is material for science. The unity of all science consists alone in its method, not in its material. The man who classifies facts of any kind whatever, who sees their mutual relation and describes their sequences, is applying the scientific method and is a man of science. The facts may belong to the past history of mankind, to the social statistics of our great cities, to the atmosphere of the most distant stars, to the digestive organs of a worm, or to the life of a scarcely visible bacillus. It is not the facts themselves which form science, but the methods by which they are dealt with."

-- Karl Pearson, The Grammar of Science. London: Everyman, 1938, p. 16.

Welcome

    Thank you for visiting my website.

       I am currently working as Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, doing research in the field of atmospheric and radiation thermodynamics.


    I previously worked as Postdoctoral Fellow for the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) with a project funded by Fundación Iberdrola España. During my PhD, I worked on the fields of Atmospheric Physics and Astrobiology, using radiative transfer models and developing new techniques for the analysis of radiation.


    I have completed a 5-years degree in theoretical physics (300 ECTS), a Master degree in Astronomy & Astrophysics (60 ECTS), another Master degree in Science and Technology of the Space (60 ECTS), and a PhD with honors (Cum Laude) at the Fundamental Physics and Mathematics Institute of the University of Salamanca. Also, I have recently completed a full four-years degree in economics (240 ECTS).

The Entropy of Radiation project

The unseen side of light.

Entropy of Radiation is an educational project for the general public and scientists, created to explain the history, development and uses of the second law of thermodynamics applied to radiation.
