Joaquín Fernández-Rossier holds both a Diploma (1994) and a PhD (1999) on Physics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He spent 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 is the coordinator of the Marie Curie ITN project on Spintronics in Graphene (www.spinograph.org). He has published more than 95 indexed research papers, including Nature (1), Nature Materials (2), Nature Nanotechnology (1), Nano Letters (2) , Phys. Rev. X (1), Phys. Rev. Lett. (16) , Phys. Rev. B(42), cited more than 2600 times (h=28, Research ID C-3910-2009). He has graduated 4 PhD students.
