González Herrera

Physics from Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) in 1998 with a work on high–Tc superconducting films and superlattices, which was awarded with the Premio Extraordinario de Doctorado. She worked on structural characterization of superlattices at University of California San Diego with Prof. Ivan K. Shuller. After this, she worked on magnetotuneling in 2DEG with Prof. Emilio E. Mendez in the University of New York at Stony Brook with a NATO postdoctoral fellowship. In 2001, she got a Ramon y Cajal research fel- low at Facultad de Ciencias Fisicas (UCM) to work in the fabrication of ordered nanostructures. Currently, she is Associated Professor in the Departamento de Fisica de Materiales (UCM) and in 2013 she joined IMDEA-Nanociencia as an Associated Scientist.
