Garnica Alonso

Manuela Garnica graduated in Physics in 2008 and obtained her M.Sc. in Nanoscience and Molecular Nanotechnology in 2010 at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). During her Ph.D. (2010-2013) she developed her research at the Surface Science Laboratory in the UAM under the supervision of Amadeo L. Vázquez de Parga and Rodolfo Miranda and she also spent three months in Zurich at the Empa laboratories. After a brief postdoc in Madrid, she moved to Germany in 2014 where she was working as Marie Curie fellow at the Technical University of Munich. In February 2018, she joined IMDEA-Nanoscience as Junior Leader "La Caixa"

fellow. Her research is focused in the synthesis of 2D materials on solid surfaces and the investigation of their fundamental structural, electronic and magnetic properties by means of scanning probe microscopies.
