Jorge NICOLAS-ALVAREZ

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya • PhD Student

Jorge is currently pursuing his PhD Thesis at the CommSensLab of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. His research is focused on the GEOSAR (Geosynchronous Synthetic Aperture Radar) concept. It takes place in the context of G-CLASS, a space mission recently selected by ESA to compete as the tenth Earth Explorer.

He obtained the Aerospace Engineering degree in 2016, joined ESA’s Advanced Concepts Team during 2017 and got the Master in Aerospace Science and Technology in 2018. Jorge is strongly committed to science and technology education. He participates in several dissemination activities and recently won a scientific communication contest.

“In the context of the current climate crisis, scientists are responsible for raising awareness on what is to come and the required countermeasures. My participation as a NGP panelist honours me with the responsibility of making citizens conscious of the importance their activities entail towards the future of our planet.”
