Dr. Bernardo Cervantes did his undergraduate studies in Physical Engineering at the Universidad Iberoamericana and obtained his MSc and PhD in astronomy at the Astronomy Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) in Daejeon, South Korea, at the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory in China, and at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Seoul, South Korea. He has been a researcher at the UNAM since 2015.
He studies the structure, morphology and evolution of galaxies using statistical analysis of galaxy populations. Recently, his work has focussed on the formation and structure of barred galaxies in different environments, and also on the formation processes and evolution of low surface brightness galaxies.
Currently, Dr. Cervantes is head of the public outreach department of the Institute of Radioastronomy and Astrophysics.
