Dr. Carlos Carrasco-González obtained his bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of La Laguna, Spain, and his PhD in astrophysics from the University of Granada and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) in 2010. He has been a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) since 2013.
He uses radio-inteferometric observations to study astrophysical jets and protoplanetary disks. In particular, he studies the magnetic field and collimation mechanisms in protostellar jets using the radio-interferometers ALMA (Atacama Large Millimeter Array) and VLA (Very Large Array). He also studies the evolution of dust and planet formation in protoplanetary disks.
Dr. Carrasco-González has been head of postgraduate studies in astrophysics at the Institute of Radioastronomy and Astrophysics, and also organizes a summer research program in the IRyA for undergraduate students from Mexico and other Latin American countries.
