Welcome to the web page of Ignacio Porras
This is my professional page where you can find information about my teaching and my research activities.
I made my bachelor in Physics (Theoretical Physics speciality) at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and obtained my Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics at the Universidad de Granada.
I have been teaching in the Physics degree from 1990 (beginning as an asistant and ending with a permanent position), and also I have given some courses in the Graduate Program of Physics (many body problems and nuclear technology) and mostly in the Medical Physics Graduate Program (Dosimetry).
My main research interests are Medical Physics (new strategies for the Neutron Capture Therapy of cancer and a new model for photon dosimetry), Quantum Computational Chemistry (few and many electron systems) and some problems of Mathematical Physics (convergence acceleration of series and Hilbert transforms).
I am collaborating with Fred W. King, Professor of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in Computational Chemistry research, with the n_TOF collaboration at CERN for measurements of neutron capture cross sections and with the group of Helsinki (Leena Kankaanranta and Hanna Koivunoro) in Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT), basic research.
I am currently the Director of the Department of Atomic, Molecular and Nuclear Physics at the University of Granada. I am a member of the Spanish Real Sociedad de Física (RSEF), the Sociedad Española de Física Médica (SEFM) and the International Society for Neutron Capture Therapy (ISNCT).
