16th December — Jose Maria Ezquiaga

Sparrho Advent Calendar

Jose is a Ph.D. researcher at The Institute of Theoretical Physics IFT UAM-CSIC in Madrid, Spain and was also a co-winner of Sparrho’s Researcher Prize in February 2018.

Jose used the £500 travel bursary given to him by Sparrho to speak at the 53rd Rencontres de Moriond in La Thuile, Italy on 17th March.

Expelliarmus: Hogwarts may have Snapes as its professor for the Defence Against the Dark Arts, but we have Jose as our specialist for dark energy. He studies the evolution of the universe from its birth to the present time and how it can be probed with gravitational waves. And when Jose is not busy with his research, he goes out hiking in new places and enjoys live jazz.
