    CV
    Summary
     
    I studied physics, with astrophysics speciality although my profile fits very well in space engineering. Currently I'm working in European Space Astronomy Center (ESAC) as science operations engineer in Rosetta and continuing to study PhD  at Politécnica University of Madrid in remote sensing. I believe that my background in technology and science  is a great mixture in any space organization.
