Entrevista a Ana Monserrat Martínez


Hace unos días, nuestra socia Ana Monserrat Martínez (estudiante de doctorado en UNSW) fue entrevistada en SBS radio en Español para hablar del informe que el Interagency Coordination Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (IACG) ha emitido para el Secretario General de las Naciones Unidas. Este informe habla de la situación actual respecto al descubrimiento de nuevos antibióticos y la aparición de bacterias resistentes.

En la entrevista, Ana nos cuenta por qué está ocurriendo esto y qué podemos hacer a nivel personal para evitar que cada vez hayan más bacterias resistentes. Si quieres saber más sobre el tema y otras cuestiones que se tratan en la entrevista (en español), puedes encontrarla (en español) en la web de SBS radio en Español or pinchando en:

 

Si quieres saber más sobre las bacterias resistentes y las alternativas para combatirlas, puedes leer su último artículo científico (en inglés) publicado en la revista IJMS (International Journal of Molecular Sciences).

Dr Ángel R. López-Sánchez is an astrophysicist and science communicator working at the Australian Astronomical Optics (AAO) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Macquarie University (MQ) in Sydney (NSW, Australia). His research is focused in the analysis of star formation phenomena in galaxies of the Local Universe, especially in dwarf starbursts and spiral galaxies, using multi-wavelength (UV, optical, IR, radio) data. He presented his PhD Thesis at University of La Laguna and the Instituto Astrofisica de Canarias (Spain) in 2006. In 2007 he joined CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science (Sydney) with a postdoctoral position. He then joined the AAO (formerly the Australian Astronomical Observatory) and MQ in 2011. In July 2018 he was appointed as Senior Lecturer at AAO-MQ. He has been providing instrument and observing support at the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT, Siding Spring Observatory, NSW) since 2011, being the instrument scientist of several instruments: the multi-fiber spectrograph 2dF+AAOmega and the near-infrared imager and spectrograph IRIS2. He also has large experience with integral-field spectroscopy (IFS), being a very active member of the SAMI collaboration at the AAT and part of the HECTOR Science Team. He currently is the Instrument Scientist of KOALA+AAOmega at the AAT, and leads the international astronomy survey "HI KOALA IFS Dwarf and irregular galaxy Survey" (Hi-KIDS), that is getting unique, high-quality IFS data of a sample of 100 nearby dwarf and irregular galaxies for which 21cm H I interferometric data is available He has large experience teaching undergraduate and PhD students and giving lectures and classes about Astronomy. Dr. López-Sánchez is passionate science communicator who continuously gives talks and public lectures, writes popular science articles and organizes science communication events and stargazing activities. He is very active in social media, his Twitter feed is @El_Lobo_Rayado.
