A young IAC scientist wins a distinguished prize from the European Physical Society

Jul. 25, 2018

Tanausú del Pino Alemán, a researcher at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) has been awarded the “ESPD Early Career Researcher Prize” for 2018 given by the European Physical Society to young researchers. This important recognition was awarded for his innovative contributions in the field of theoretical spectropolarimetry, a field of Physics which allows us to investigate the magnetism in the atmosphere of the Sun and of other stars by interpreting the polarization observed in the radiation of their spectral lines.

Tanausú del Pino Alemán prepared his doctoral thesis in the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) where his two directors were Javier Trujillo Bueno and Rafael Manso Sanz (OJO ES SANZ NO SAINZ!), and from November 2015 has the title of Doctor in Physical Science of the University of La Laguna. After defending his thesis he obtained a postdoctoral position for two years at the High Altitude Observatory (HAO) of the National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder (Colorado, United States). From February 2018 he is again researching at the IAC with a postdoctoral contract funded by the “Advanced Grant” which the European Research Council granted to Javier Trujillo Bueno, also a researcher at the IAC and Research Professor of the CSIC.
