Birth Place, Country:
PHD in Physics, Universidad de Cantabria (Spain), 28-September-1987
Research Fellowship of the Spanish Ministry of Education (MEC) (1984-1987). Departamento de Física Teórica. Universidad de Cantabria.
Fleming Postdoctoral Fellowship in the United Kingdom (MEC-British Council) (1988-1989). Institute of Astronomy (University of Cambridge).
Professor of Applied Mathematics since 1989. Departamento de Matemáticas. Universidad de Oviedo.
Member of the Planck collaboration as Associate Researcher (1998-2017). The Planck satellite measured with unprecedented accuracy the cosmic microwave background (CMB) spatial fluctuations (2009-13)
Current research/ job focus:
Analysis of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization. Statistics of the galaxy distribution.
Area of expertise:
Mathematical techniques for the detection and flux estimation of extragalactic sources.
Mathematical methods in Cosmology
Area of interests:
Applied mathematics. Cosmology
Role in SOLARNET/PRE-EST:
Life outside science: Spending time with my family and friends. Reading. Playing tennis
A dose of motivation: If you are stuck with your research, relax. It has happened to all researchers. You will find the way to continue.
What motivated you to choose your field of study/ your professional field?
At the end of my degree in Physics, I was very interested in Relativity and Cosmology.
Research profile (e.g. ORCID ID, Web of Science, ResearchGate):
Research gate: F. Argüeso currently works at University of Oviedo. Their current project is ‘Polarized emission of extragalactic radio sources.’.
