    Vázquez de Parga

    Amadeo L. Vázquez de Parga obtained his PhD in 1992 at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM). He carried out a postdoc stay at IBM Research Laboratory in Rüschlikon (Switzerland) in photoluminescence excited by the STM. From 2019 Prof. Vázquez de Parga is Full Professor in Condensed Matter Physics at the UAM and from 2008 Associated Researcher Professor at IMDEA Nanociencia. In 2002-2003 was visiting researcher at the Radboud University, Nijmegen (The Netherlands), working on spin polarized STM and in 2018 in the group of M. Fuhrer at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low Energy Electronic Technologies FLEET, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. Short research stays at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, California (1990), Max Planck Institute in Halle (Germany) (2000) and at University of Gakushuin, Tokio (Japan) (2004) and Chiba University, Chiba Japan (2015) in the group of Prof. T.K. Yamada.

    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 Nanociencia 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.
