Francisco Navarro graduated in Geophysics at Universidad Complutense de Madrid and, after two years as Research Associate at University of California-Los Angeles, joined Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, where he got his PhD in 1991 and is now ‘Profesor Titular’ of Applied Mathematics and director of the Group of Numerical Simulation in Science and Engineering.
Since 1997 his research activity has focused on glaciology, with focus on modelling of glacier dynamics, glaciological applications of ground-penetrating radar and mass balance studies.
He has participated in 8 Antarctic and 7 Arctic fieldwork campaigns, totalling over 26 months, including over-wintering at the South Pole Station in 1983-1984 and holding the position of Manager of the Spanish Antarctic Station in 2006-2007 campaign.
He is Spanish Delegate to the Standing Scientific Group on Physical Sciences of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the Cryosphere Working Group of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and Correspondent in Spain of the International Glaciological Society.
He has been awarded the Antarctica Services Medal of the United States of America.
