The Science Operations Group

The IRAM 30m Science Operations Group (SOG) is staffed with astronomers that serve as astronomers-on-duty to optimise the scientific return of the instrument, directly on the site or remotely from Granada.

SOG astronomers provide technical support and expertise on the IRAM 30m telescope to investigators and visiting astronomers for questions related to the calibration, pipeline-processing and archiving of 30m data. The SOG is in charge of monitoring the system to assess the data quality and the instrumental performance, and of developing the 30m data calibration pipeline.

The SOG employs a team of currently 9 astronomers:

  • Angel Bongiovanni, Astronomer, Pool Manager NIKA2
  • Carsten Kramer, Astronomer, Scheduler, ORP-Contact
  • Brisa Mancillas, Astronomer, Deputy Pool Manager HET (EMIR)
