Martín Rubio, Carolina

PhD student

Supervisors: José Antonio Rodríguez Manfredi, Felipe Gómez Gómez

In 2017 I finished my degree in Physics at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM). In 2018 I did the master’s degree in Meteorology and Geophysics with my Master’s Final Project: “Geomagnetic Jerks Analysis from satellite data” supervised by the professors Dr. Francisco Javier Pavón Carrasco and Dra. María Luisa Osete, at this same university. Since then, I have been passionate about scientific programming, Earth Sciences and Astrophysics. In 2019 I was awarded a Research Fellowship at the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) and I joined the Space Magnetism Group where I collaborated in the calibration of the AMR instrument (Exomars2022 mission). In addition, under the supervision of Dr. Ruy Sanz González, I performed the magnetic characterization of different materials useful for space exploration and developed a software for calibration and analysis of magnetic data. In 2020 I started my doctorate at the Astrobiology Center (CAB) through a PhD student contract (FPI) granted by the Ministry of Science and Innovation and associated with the National Plan project RTI2018-098728-B-C31 whose main researcher and algos my thesis supervisor is Dr. José Antonio Rodríguez Manfredi. The research lines of my doctoral thesis focus on the study of the atmosphere-surface interaction of Mars, on the modeling of its dynamics, the radiative balance, and the main processes in the cycle of dust, water and other relevant aerosols for life. All this from data obtained by the REMS and MEDA (Mars2020 mission) meteorological stations.
