Jesus Marco is Research Professor at Instituto de Física de Cantabria (IFCA), a joint center CSIC‐Universidad de Cantabria.
He has been director of IFCA (2004-2007) and Coordinator in the Physics Area within CSIC (2008-2010).
He currently works in two research lines at IFCA: Experimental Particle Physics and Advanced Computing and e-Science.
PhD on experimental particle physics in 1989, he collaborated in the
DELPHI experiment at the Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP) at CERN
until 2000, in the search for the Higgs boson, and is now member of the
CMS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where he
contributes in the Tier‐2 computing center at IFCA and in Long Term Data
He has participated in several European projects on Grid computing:
Interactive European Grid (coordinator), CrossGrid, EGEE, DORII, and in
the European Grid Initiative, EGI, through Ibergrid.
He has coordinated the installation and operation of computing
infrastructure at IFCA, including GRID‐CSIC resources, and the ALTAMIRA
supercomputer, the node of the University of Cantabria in the Spanish
Supercomputing Network (RES).
He is currently involved in the ESFRI LifeWatch initiative, helping
to shape its core-ICT. In relation to this work, he is participating in
the FP7 COOPEUS project, focused on data interoperability, and leading
the LifeWatch Competence Center in the new H2020 EGI-Engage project.
He has collaborated with several companies (CIC, Ecohydros, BSH, ENSA) in different research and innovation projects.
He is responsible of the course on "Project design, management and
tools" within the degree on Physics, and also of the course on "Advanced
Computing" at master level, both at the Faculty of Science in the
University of Cantabria.
