Dr. Rosa Amelia González obtained her bachelor’s degree in physics at the Autonomous Metropolitan University, Campus Iztapalapa, and her PhD in astronomy at the University of California in Berkeley. She has been a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) since 2000.

She has made important contributions in topics related to stellar populations and star formation in the field of observational extragalactic astronomy. Highlights of her research include the observational confirmation of azimuthal gradients of stellar ages across the arms of spiral galaxies, the first evidence that the maximum mass of very young stellar clusters decreases with radius in the disk galaxy M33, and the discovery, in the spiral galaxy M106, of the only system of globular clusters that rotates as rapidly as the neutral hydrogen disk.

Dr. González is a member of the American Astronomical Society and the Mexican Academy of Sciences.
