Elena Navarro Palma


Professor in the Materials Physics Department at UCM. She obtained her PhD under supervision of Prof. Antonio Hernando in the study of magnetic properties of metastable phases in FeRh alloys. From 2000 to 2004 she investigated at IMM-CSIC on the synthesis of nanoparticles and thin films deposited by sputtering and the modulation of its magnetics interactions by capping materials. From 2005 to 2017 her research was focused on superconducting-magnetic proximity effect at UCM. Also, in this period she worked at ICMM-CSIC in the deposition of magnetic nanoparticles and core-shell nanoparticles by gas-phase-aggregation source. She is author of 70 scientific publications with 880 quotations (h=17) and she has participated on more than 30 projects with public financing. Her current interest at IMA involves different research lines: Graphene large scale production by Ball-Milling, the search of new Permanent Magnets in the form on Soft-Hard Composites; the synthesis of Ferromagnetic Carbides Nanoparticles in Carbon matrix; and the Microwave Scattering by Amorphous Ferromagnetic Microwires.

César González Pascual


Associate Professor in the Condensed Matter area in the Materials Physics Department of the Complutense University of Madrid. He is leading researcher in theoretical simulations based on the Density Functional Theory applied to the study of the electro-chemical properties of a great variety of materials. He has published around 80 articles in peer-review journals, obtaining more than 1600 citations on the Scopus database (h-index=23).  He has presented his work in more than 40 talks in international congresses, meetings, or institutions (ten invited talks). He has participated in more than 20 national or international projects, being the principal researcher in several computational projects. He had co-supervised different Final Year Degree Project and Master Thesis as well as one postdoctoral fellow. At this moment, he is supervising two PdD students.

Daniel Matatagui Cruz


Ramón y Cajal researcher. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics in 2012 from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. From 2008–2013 he was working in the GRIDSEN group at the CSIC (Spain) on I + D + i of biochemical microsensors and electronic noses for environmental protection.
