Pablo Rodríguez-Sánchez studied physics at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He got his MSc diploma in 2012, with a thesis on Artificial Vision. As a consequence of this thesis, he worked for 3 years as an engineer at Indizen Optical Technologies, a company focused on the design of lenses for human use.
In the autumn of 2015 he moved to The Netherlands in order to conduct a PhD in Applied Mathematics at Wageningen University. There he dealt with topics so varied as numerical modeling of plankton dynamics, sensor data analysis in dairy farms, and the mathematics of synchronization in sleep-wake cycles. The resulting PhD thesis, Cycles and interactions: a mathematician among biologists, was defended in June 2020.
Since 2011, Pablo has been pursuing his two main passions closely: teaching and science communication. He does this mainly via naukas.com, one of the largest science communication platforms in the Spanish language. His main role there is to contribute articles about mathematics and physics, some of them featuring interactive visualization applets. Additionally, he has given several popular science talks in theaters, with styles ranging from educational to stand-up comedy.
Pablo joined the Netherlands eScience Center in autumn 2019.
