Nuestro socio, el estudiante de doctorado Pablo Corcho-Caballero (Universidad de Macquarie) ha sido entrevistado por el famoso divulgador científico Ignacio Crespo (@SdeStendhal) en el podcast Noosfera de La Razón. La entrevista, titulada “Historia de una galaxia”, se publica hoy en iVoox.

Pablo es miembro de SRAP desde que llegó a Australia a principios de 2022. Está a punto de depositar su tesis doctoral en astrofísica, una cotutela entre la Universidad de Macquarie y la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Además de ser un joven científico muy brillante es un gran divulgador científico, como se aprecia en la entrevista.
