Dr. Gilberto Gómez obtained his undergraduate degree in physics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico and his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has been a researcher at the UNAM since 2005.

He studies spiral structure in disk galaxies using numerical simulations, and he also investigates the formation and evolution of molecular clouds. A highlight of his work is the formation of filaments in numerical simulations of molecular clouds undergoing gravitational collapse.

Dr. Gómez has been head of postgraduate studies in astrophysics in the Institute of Radioastronomy and Astrophysics.
