Miguel A. González

Miguel A. González serves as the deputy head of the Scientific Computing group of the Institut Laue-Langevin, a world-leading neutron scattering facility located in Grenoble, France.

He earned his PhD in Chemical Physics from Complutense University in Madrid in 2000. Following this, he joined the Institut Laue-Langevin initially as instrument scientist, and since 2007, as a member of the Computing for Science group. In this capacity, he contributes to several software projects focused on neutron data reduction and analysis. 

He also possesses significant expertise in the combined application of neutron scattering and computer simulations to investigate the structure and dynamics of molecular crystals and disordered systems. His current research interests encompass the study of molecular motions in drugs and inclusion compounds of pharmaceutical interest, the exploration of the structure and dynamics of room temperature ionic liquids, including their interaction with biophysical membranes, and the examination of novel ionic conductors for battery applications. He has authored or co-authored over 140 research articles published in international journals.
