Fernández Ruz, Marina

Complexity in Astrobiology- PhD student

Supervisors: Jacobo Aguirre y Marta Ruiz Bermejo

Marina Fernández Ruz graduated in Physics from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2020 and obtained a Master’s degree in Physics of Condensed Matter and Biological Systems (Biophysics specialization) from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2021. During the development of her master’s thesis, she worked at CAB with a JAE-Intro ICU grant from CSIC under the supervision of Jacobo Aguirre. Her research focused on the formation of the simplest molecular precursors of life in the Interstellar Medium applying Complexity Theory. She has participated in several international conferences.

Currently she is a predoctoral researcher at CAB under the supervision of Jacobo Aguirre and Marta Ruiz Bermejo. Her PhD thesis focuses on modeling the origin of life as a complex and emergent phenomenon. She will develop mathematical and computational work in the context of the physics of Complex Systems.
