Sergio Javier González Manrique got his Ph.D. degree in Astrophysics by the University of Potsdam, Germany, in 2017. Then, he continued to work for a few months at the Leibniz-Institut für Astrophysik Potsdam (AIP) as a scientific researcher for the solar physics group and the Supercomputing and E-Science group. In September 2017, he got a postdoc position at Astronomical Institute Slovak Academy of Sciences (AISAS), Slovakia, in the solar physics department. In January 2019, he got a Scientist permanent position at AISAS. In 2020, he got a postdoc position at IAC as a member of the PI2FA project.

Sergio’s research field is the multi-instruments and multi-wavelength analysis of the dynamics  and magnetic field of emerging flux regions in the solar atmosphere and the study of arch filament structures. He is intimately familiar with spectral line inversion tools such SIR, HAZEL, and he developed an in-house tool to infer chromopsheric doppler velocities based on observations obtained with the He I triplet.
