Maximo Ave Pernas is New Research Fellow at the Universe Cluster

The Excellence Cluster Universe welcomes a new Research Fellow. Maximo Ave Pernas has recently joined the Garching research community. Before, he spent six years at the University of Chicago, working for the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics. In his research career Ave Pernas specialized in the field of cosmic rays, studying the phenomenon with both experimental and theoretical approaches. His research works included balloon experiments as well as cosmic ray phenomenology.

He was also actively involved in the building of the Pierre Auger Observatory designed to explore the high-energy end of the cosmic ray spectrum. He served the project in both the engineer phase as well as in calibration works and data analysis. At the Excellence Cluster Universe the expert in high energy astrophysics plans to expand his research to the early time of the Universe and its evolution.

Ave Pernas gained his PhD degree at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. After that he was a PRARC fellow at the University of Leeds, England, focusing on the chemical composition of the Cosmic Rays with energies above 10^17 eV.
