Jose Lado

Research Fellow
Theory of Quantum Nanostructures

Jose Lado holds a Degree in Physics (2012), a Master Degree in Material Science and Technology (2013) and a PhD in Material Science (2016) by the University of Santiago de Compostela.

He joined the Theory of Nanostructures Group at INL as a PhD student within the SPINOGRAPH Marie Curie Training Network, where his research focused on modelling spin transport and control in devices of graphene and other 2D crystals. In particular, he studied the interplay of non-collinear magnetism, skyrmions, spin-orbit coupling and superconductivity in graphene related materials, and how they provide a route to create topological insulating states.

His current research is focused on electronic and magnetic properties of quantum materials, using computational techniques as density functional theory methods, tight binding modelling and spin Hamiltonians. He is author of 20 peer review publications in journals as Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters, Physical Review X, Physical Review Letters, 2D Materials (2) and Physical Review B (8).
