My full name is Armando (first) Gil de Paz (last). I obtained my Graduate Degree in Physics in 1995 (with honors: Premio Extraordinario de Licenciatura) and finished my Ph.D. in 2000, both at Complutense University of Madrid (UCM). That same year I started working for Caltech/JPL IPAC and in 2002 I moved to the Carnegie Institution for Science, where I worked until 2005. In 2005 I got a Marie Curie Fellowship at UCM, where I also later accepted a Ramon y Cajal contract in 2007 and became a permanent Profesor Contratado Doctor (Associate Professor) in 2012. Since 2017 I am a Profesor Titular at the UCM.
