Guillermo Tenorio Tagle

Stay at the IAC: 15/11/2013 to 15/12/2013.

Research line: Galactic Formation and Evolution

Prof. Tenorio-Tagle presented at IAC his latest results on the hydrodynamics of the matter reinserted within massive and compact super stellar clusters in a Severo Ochoa seminar on November 28th 2013 entitled "Dusty supernovae running the thermodynamics of the matter reinserted by young stellar clusters"

Dr. Tenorio-Tagle is a full Professor at the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica Optica y Electrónica (INAOE, Puebla - Mexico).

He obtained his Ph. D. at the Victoria University of Manchester (UK). For three years (09/1976 - 08/1978) he held a postdoctoral position at the Max-Planck Institute fur Astrophysik (Munich, Germany) and two more years (09/1978 - 08/1980) as a postdoc at the European Southern Observatory (ESO), then based in Geneva Switzerland. After that he returned to the Max-Planck Institute fur Astrophysik as head of the Interstellar Matter group, position held for almost nine years (1980 - 1989). After that he became an invited Professor at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC, Tenerife, Spain) until February 1996. He was then awarded the Professorship Chair from the BBV-Foundation at the University of Cambridge (UK) where he was hosted at the Institute of Astronomy, for two years (3/1996 - 3/1998). Since March 1998 he is a full Professor at the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica Optica y Electrónica (INAOE, Puebla - Mexico).

During these last years he was awarded the Spanish IBERDROLA Professorship Chair at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (May - July 2001) and a Professorship Chair at the Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris VI, France (July 2002 and 2005). In 2006 spent a sabbatical year at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucia (IAA - Granada, Spain) and in 2010 six months at the Institute of Astronomy of the University of Cambridge, UK.

He has acted as full Professor at the College de France (Paris) where he was awarded the Francois I medal in 1983, he was invited in 1983 at the Center of Nuclear Studies (Saclay, France) as well as for several months during the years 1982 – 1987 to Lick Observatory, University of California - Santa Cruz and he has been Senior Visiting Fellow at ESO (Santiago Chile) in 1996 and 1998.

Guillermo Tenorio-Tagle is a world recognised expert on Interstellar Matter, Star Formation and the Feedback from Massive Stars.

During his visit Prof Tenorio Tagle discussed results with some students at the IAC- in particular he participated very actively in discussing results of Rodrigo Hinojosa Goñi´s PhD thesis. He also worked with members of the IAC staff on the importance of the hydrodynamics of the massive starbursts in the formation and evolution of galaxies. In particular some projects were planned together with the advanced Severo Ochoa fellow Claudio dalla Vecchia. Prof. Tenorio Tagle also participated in scientific discussions on observational data with his collaborators within Estallidos team and other scientist at the Institute. Some results were published in Mollá et al. (2014) and Palous et al. (2014).
