José Luis Mesa obtained his MsSciences in Physics in the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2012. Since then he has enjoyed a training scholarship in the Space Magnetism Laboratory at the Spanish National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) under the supervision of Dr. Marina Díaz Michelena.His research line has been focused on the development of instrumentation for the characterization of the magnetic environment in planetary applications (Mars and Moon). In this frame, he has contributed with the construction of an instrument for direct and punctual determination of the magnetic field gradient. The work has been done in close collaboration with Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Carnegie Mellon University.
