We are pleased to have scientific professionals from different academic fields, whose trajectory has led them to be based in the Netherlands:

Dr. Pablo Rodríguez-Sánchez: research software engineer at the Netherlands eScience Center and member of Naukas. Pablo Rodríguez-Sánchez (Guadalajara, 1984) has a degree in physics (Complutense University of Madrid, 2012). In 2015, after having worked as an engineer for the optical industry, he emigrated to the Netherlands in order to conduct a PhD in applied mathematics (Wageningen University, 2020). Since 2011 he is an active member of Naukas, one of the largest science communication and popularization platforms in the Spanish language. Currently, he works as a research software engineer at the Netherlands eScience Center.

Dr. María Bruquetas-Callejo: research fellow at the Center of Migration Law / Sociology of Law, Radboud University Nijmegen. Her work deals with migration and welfare state policies from a comparative, multidisciplinary and multi-level perspective. She has published widely on immigrants’ access to the welfare state and to healthcare, immigrants’ integration policies, and transnational eldercare arrangements. Her recent research examines the contribution of migrants to retrenching welfare states in the field of long-term care.

Dr. María Ángeles Fernández-Ibañez: Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam. Tati) Fernández-Ibáñez was born in Madrid. She received in 2006 her PhD at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) Spain, under the supervision of Prof. José L. García Ruano and Prof. M. Carmen Maestro. In 2012 she was appointed Assistant Professor at the Department of Organic Chemistry at the UAM. In January 2015 she moved to the University of Amsterdam (UvA) as Assistant Professor (tenure-track) and in 2017 she was promoted to Associate Professor.

Dr. Daniel Blanco Ania: Staff scientist in Radboud University Nijmegen. He was born (1973) and raised in Madrid (Spain). He studied in the Autonomous University of Madrid (91–96). At the beginning of his fourth year, Daniel set up “Academia Blanco”, a private school to teach Organic Chemistry to university students. In 1999, he opened a small nightclub with a couple of friends. After eight years of teaching (94–02) and three years of long nights (99–02), he shut down all his businesses and moved to the Netherlands to do a Ph.D. (Radboud University) and a post-doctoral stay (02–08). He went then back to Spain as a post-doc in the Spanish National Research Council. After this, he moved back to Radboud University to substitute an associate professor. He does research and teaching at this university since the end of 2012. Daniel has been awarded three teaching prizes in the last six years (MW Trophy 2014, Radboud Education Award 2018, and KNCV Education Award 2019)
