Nathaly Marín-Medina

Researcher at Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas
Investigación actual


Currently, I am a researcher at Laboratorio de Investigación y Desarrollo en Electrónica y Redes - LIDER, Faculty of Engineering, Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, and a member of the Comité Científico Colombiano del Sector Aeroespacial - COCSAE. My current research projects consist in proposing biophysical loads for nanosatellites, and codirecting a series of remote interviews to different professionals talking about our lives during the CoViD pandemics, called #LoHacemosxTIC

I have a PhD and a MSc in Physics, graduating from Universidad de los Andes (Colombia). I also have a MEng in Electrical Engineering, graduating from École des Mines de Nantes (France), and my undergraduate BEng was in Electronics Engineering at Universidad de Los Andes (Colombia).
