The Spanish Royal Physics Society has announced today the “Real Sociedad Española de Física - Fundación BBVA 2020” Physics Prizes. Dr. Héctor Gil-Marín, a researcher in cosmology at the Institute of Cosmos Sciences (ICCUB) and a postdoctoral Junior Leader “la Caixa” fellow, has been rewarded with the Young Researcher Award in Theoretical Physics.

The jury highlights his outstanding contributions to the analysis and interpretation of galaxy mapping, advancing our understanding of the accelerated Universe, being undoubtedly one of the most brilliant researchers in the field of the cosmology of his generation.

Dr. Gil-Marín was a member of the BOSS and eBOSS international collaborations and is a current researcher of DESI, where he plays a leading role in the survey mapping. He actively participated in the analysis of BOSS and eBOSS data, which resulted in the recently published largest three-dimensional map of the distribution of galaxies. His research is focused on the large-scale structure of the Universe, and he intends to answer one of the most fundamental questions in cosmology for the past 20 years, what drives the late-time accelerated expansion of the Universe.
