The EDMANS group will integrate from this September two new researchers, Javier Antoñanzas Torres and Rubén Urraca Valle, having received PhD scholarships FPI and FPU, respectively. These scholarships consist of a four year period with the possibility of doing research stays in national and international centers and also teaching.
The research line of Javier Antoñanzas Torres will be focused on the solar energy modeling, continuing with his previous works developed in his final project of its bachelor, in which it was analyzed the potential integration of solar energy in combined cycle gas turbines and in his master thesis, in which he researched in hybrid (photovoltaic-thermal) solar panels.
Rubén Urraca Valle will be researching within the VINE ROBOT project awarded by the 7th Framework Program, in which the EDMANS group cooperates. He will work on the analysis and modeling of variables relative to the quality of the grapes with data mining and artificial intelligence.
Both Javier and Rubén have been actively working with the EDMANS group during the last years.
