  Axel Arnold
Axel Arnold Axel Arnold was born in 1975 in Ulm, Germany. After finishing school in Offenbach near Frankfurt, he studied Mathematics and Computer sciences at the J. Gutenberg-University, Mainz, graduating with a thesis on numerical methods for computer simulations. In his second year of undergraduate studies, he took up a part time student job in the Max-Planck-Institute for polymer research, which eventually evolved into a PhD position. During his PhD he worked on simulations of strongly charged systems, and was one of the core developers of the simulation package ESPResSo. In 2004, after finishing his PhD in physics, Axel joined the newly founded Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, and moved in December 2005 to his current position at AMOLF in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

  Vanessa Diaz
Vanessa Diaz Vanessa Díaz-Zuccarini is Italian-Venezuelan, graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Universidad Simon Bolivar (Venezuela). She moved to France where she obtained her PhD in Automatic Control and Industrial Informatics (Modelling and Simulation of Cardiac Dynamics) (First Class Honors) at the Ecole Centrale de Lille. She is currently a Marie Curie Fellow in the Department of Medical Physics at the University of Sheffield, where she is carrying out research on the coupling of 3D models with lumped parameter models for cardiovascular applications.
  Badri Narayanan Damodaran
Badri Narayanan Damodaran Badri Damodaran is currently a Marie curie EST fellow at European Organization for Nuclear Research [CERN] working with Large hadron collider Beauty experiment [LHCb] online group. Prior to this he has Master's degree in Systems Integration and Project Management from France. Also bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from University of Madras (India).Current domain of work and interest revolves around developing controls for sub detectors specifically the Data Acquisition System (DAQ) in view with the design and development of final run control for LHCb.

  Euloge Edi
Euloge Edi Euloge Edi is an Ivorian citizen. After his graduation in Applied Mathematics from Université d`Abidjan-cocody (Ivory Coast) he was at the Institut National polytechnique de Grenoble where he was awarded a Master degree in Operational Research and a Ph.D in Computer Science. His current research interests focus on the areas of Parallel and Distributed Computing. He is presently a Marie Curie fellow in School of Physics at University College Dublin.

  Elena Lopez Alonso
Elena López

Elena López Alonso was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1979. She studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Valladolid (Spain), which included an Erasmus year at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany. Furthermore, she wrote her Diploma Thesis on electrochromic displays at Siemens AG, Erlangen in collaboration with the University of Valladolid. In October 2003, she was awarded an Industrial Host Marie Curie Fellowship under the Framework Programme V at Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology in Dresden, Germany, where she is working at present. She is aiming to obtain her PhD in the field of Plasma enhanced chemical etching of crystalline silicon solar cells at the Technische Universität Dresden. Her current research interests include thin film technology, plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition and silicon solar cells.

  Simone Napolitano
Simone Napolitano Simone Napolitano is a PhD student in the POLYFILM Network working at KUL, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven He graduated in Materials Science from Università degli studi di Pisa, with a curriculum focused on physical, chemical and technological aspects of polymer science and the amorphous state of matter. He spent the summers of 2003 and 2004 in Pasadena, California, working as a summer student at California Institute of Technology. His summer research projects dealt with crystallization phenomena in bulk glassy metals and electropolishing of silicon for Advanced LIGO, Laser Interferometer Gravitational-waves Observatory. His final thesis was an experimental work on the connection between relaxation phenomena and tribological properties in ultrathin films of poly(ethylene terephthalate). During the nine months of full time work, inaugurating a collaboration between the National Enterprise for nanoScience and nanotechnology of Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa and PolyLab (Laboratory for Industrial Application of Polymers), he acquired experience in ultrathin films preparation and characterization of polymers via dielectric spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy.
  Daniela Vergani
Daniela Vergani
Daniela Vergani has started a Marie Curie Reintegration fellowship at the Institute of Astrophysics (INAF - IASF Milan) in July 2005, where she joined the galactic dynamics group in her home country after several years spent abroad. Before the Marie Curie ERG, she spent two years as Euro3D postdoc at the Observatory of Paris section Meudon with the team in charge of the FLAMES instrument on the Very Large Telescope (VLT), the biggest instrument of the European Southern Observatory. In July 2003, she obtained her PhD degree at the Radioastronomical Institute of the University of Bonn (Germany). She did her undergraduate studies in Astronomy at the University of Bologna. Her interests lie mostly in galactic dynamics and structure. She is mainly interested in gathering clues about the formation mechanisms and evolution processes of galaxies from observations of their present properties in deep cosmological surveys.
