Profile Summary

Pascuala García-Martínez is Full Professor of Optics at the Optics Department in the University of Valencia. She received her BS degree in physics in 1993 from the University of Valencia, Spain. She received her MS and PhD degrees from the same university in 1995 and 1998, respectively.

She was a visitor researcher in Georgia Tech Lorraine, Metz (France), Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Tel-Aviv University (Israel) and Centre d’Optique, Photonique et Lasers, Universite Laval, Québec (Canada). She has also visited as researcher different spanish universities as the University of Alicante and the University Miguel Hernández of Elche where currently she is developing her research as member of the group (Grupo de Tecnologías Ópticas y Optoectrónicas).

Her main field of research focuses on the study of spatial modulators of light, basically in the characterization and application of liquid crystals, the processing optical-digital imaging, non-linear correlations
and morphological processing. She is co-author of 70 articles in international journals of high impact index. of 6 chapters of the book and about 60 communications (17 of them invited and 1 plenary) international and national congresse. He has also collaborated in more than 30 projects R & D financed in public calls at both the state and regional level.

Deeply committed to defending women's rights researchers: Coordinator of the node of the Valencian Community of the Association of Women Researchers and Technologists (AMIT) from 2005 to the present, and currently is the President of the Specialized "Women in Physics" of the prestigious Royal Spanish Society of Physics. Representative of the Faculty of Physics in the Equality Policy Commission of the UVEG (2010-present). Director of the Equality Commission of the Faculty of Physics (2010-present). Member of the Drafting Commission of the II Equality Plan of the University of Valencia representing the Science Campus in 2013.
