Jesús Marco new Vice President at CSIC

Professor Jesús Marco, computer specialist in the Physics Institute of Cantabria (IFCA), has joined the president’s team in the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Marco completed his PhD in High Energy Experimental Physics within the LEP experiment (Large Electron-Positron Collider) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Later on he has been IFCA’s director for three years and Science and Physical Technologies national coordinator at CSIC. Now, Jesús Marco is Vice President of Research, Science and Technology.

During the last years he has held various high-responsibility positions. He has led many important experiments like, for instance, the activities focused in the search for the Higgs boson. His teaching work at IFCA was divided in two different research lines: "Experimental Particle Physics" and "Advanced Computing and e-Science."

Marco has been one of the main promoters -both nationally and internationally- of Grid technologies for scientific use. Spanish contributions to the new computer system for particle experiments’ next generation have been boosted, leading to an outstanding computer network in Spain. He has also coordinated the installation and operation process of the computing infrastructure at IFCA, which houses one of the largest supercomputer of the country: ALTAMIRA.


Congratulations, Jesús, for this well-deserved new position. We wish you success in all your endeavors.
