Juan González, Enrique Ramis, Blanca Feliu and Neus Montoro have recently been recruited by Campus Gandia thanks to the implementation of the Youth Guarantee in RDI program, promoting youth employment. An action that is part of the State Subprogram for Incorporation, part of the umbrella of the State Program for the Promotion of Talent and Employability in RDI, under the umbrella of the 2017-2020 State Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation.
The aim of the initiative, funded by the State Research Agency and co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI), is to hire qualified personnel under the age of 30 in technical and management RDI jobs for a two-year period.
Juan González, graduate in Telecommunications, Sound and Image Systems Engineering and specialized in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, is joining the Immersive Interactive Media (IIM) Research & Development (R&D) Group at Campus Gandia, led by Fernando Boronat. For the coming two years, Juan will provide technical support in the line of research in immersive multimedia systems, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), multi-sensory, interactive and collaborative network, additionally collaborating in the assembly and testing of new prototypes, as well as in their evaluation processes. At present, the research group is also carrying out research and innovation projects in other lines, in which he will also collaborate, such as the development of an innovative stereoscopic vision system and the design of a system to study facial paralysis.
Enrique Ramis has a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, as well as Master’s Degree in Engineering, Processing and Characterization of Materials. On the campus, he will work in the team led by Jesús Alba, where he will conduct tests on the acoustic and thermal characterization of materials from sustainable natural resources in acoustic chambers. Currently, new materials are being developed using environmentally friendly, reusable and recyclable natural resources, but this entails a refocusing of technological, regulatory and modeling solutions. Enrique will work on the improvement, consolidation, programming and automation of characterization protocols for these materials and devices from the acoustic standpoint.
Blanca Feliu studied both the Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Sciences and the Master’s Degree in Assessment and Environmental Monitoring of Marine and Coastal Ecosystems at this University. She will now join the Research Institute for Integrated Management of Coastal Areas – IGIC, supporting the groups formed by Silvia Falco, Francisco Martínez Capel and Tomás Sogorb. She will work on environmental research projects where she will conduct sampling in river, estuarine and marine ecosystems. In addition, she will collaborate in ecological, water resources management, aquaculture, topography, food technology and health science projects, that require chemical and organism analysis. Blanca will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the latest technology, used both by the University and by administrations and companies, which will allow her to develop her skills in monitoring systems.
Finally, Neus Montoro will provide technical to support in RDI management and will participate in the promotion, popularization and dissemination of scientific activities. Neus is a graduate in Audiovisual Communication and has completed the Master’s Degree in Digital Postproduction taught on Campus. Therefore, she is aware of the fundamental role of communication as a means of transferring scientific knowledge to society.”Scientific communication is vital to arouse society’s interest in science and research, as well as to support researchers and attract funding.”
