Joaquín Fernández-Rossier holds both a Diploma (1994) and a Phd (1999) on Physics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He spend 2 years (99-01) as a postdoctoral researcher at the Physics Department of the University of California San Diego and 18 months (01-03) at the Physics Department of the University of Texas at Austin. In 2003 he obtained a Ramon y Cajal assistant professor position in the Universidad de Alicante and he was promoted to a permanent position in 2008 and to an associate professor (professor titular) in 2009. He works on the broad field of condensed matter physics with emphasis on nanoelectronics and nanospintronics on a variety of materials including graphene and other layered two dimensional materials, magnetic semiconductors and topological insulators. He has published more than 65 indexed research papers, including 1 Nature, 13 PRL, 32 PRB, cited more than 1600 times (h=23, Research ID C-3910-2009). He has graduated 3 PhD students.
