Two researchers from La Salle-URL named in the list of the top 150 Spanish scientists in the latest ACUMEN ranking
The 4th edition of the Ranking of Scientists in Spanish Institutions (from 1 to 5.000) which rates researchers according to their mentions in the Google Scholar, and organized by the ACUMEN Project of the European Commission has included two researchers from La Salle Campus Barcelona-URL in the top 150 positions: Dr Xavier Vilasís and Dra Miriam Calvo. Dr. Xavier Vilasís, Doctor in Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona and Chair at La Salle-URL was ranked 132. Xavier Vilasís is a member of the LHCb collaboration at CERN. His research covers both physics and engineering and he has published many works on the technological aspects of the physical content of participles. As Vice-Dean of the La Salle Doctoral Program, he deals with the training needs of engineers as they prepare to face new challenges in society. Míriam Calvo Gómez, Doctor in Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona (2006) was ranked 142. She started her postdoctoral research here in 2008 and is a member of the GR-SETAD group. She is also a member of the international LHCb collaboration at CERN, where she works on the analysis of experimental LHCb data, and more specifically on the study of the physical components of particles. As part of her work, we should highlight her role as coordinator of the ‘Calorimeter Objects’ group and her former position as coordinator of the physics group ‘Radiative B decays’. The data used in this ranking was compiled in the second week of December 2016 and researchers were positioned in ascending order according to the number of publications to their name.
