Dr. Omaira González-Martín obtained her degree in physics from the University of La Laguna, Spain, and her PhD in astrophysics from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) and the University of Granada. She did postdoctoral research at the University of Leicester, the University of Crete and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias. She has been a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) since 2014.
She studies active galactic nuclei, principally in the Local Universe. In particular, she researches the properties of dust associated with these galaxies using advanced statistical techniques applied to large collections of observational data at mid-infrared and X-ray wavelengths.
Currently, Dr. González-Martín is the head of postgraduate studies in the Institute for Radioastronomy and Astrophysics (IRyA) and organizes the AGN group in the institute. In 2021 she was awarded the Reconocimiento Distinción Universidad Nacional para Jóvenes Académicas (RDUNJA) in the area of research in the exact sciences.
