Iria García López

Research Fellow

Dr. Iria García López is a Research Fellow at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal (July 2020-present) in the Nanodevices group. She is involved in the development of a new family of low-cost integrated sensors in CMOS technologies towards the creation of an autonomous membrane-based fluorescence platform for the optical monitoring of environmental emissions of ammonia.

Iria received her master degree in Electronics and Automation from the University of Vigo, Spain in 2012. From November 2012 to September 2018 she was with IHP-Microelectronics GmbH, Germany, as an Analog Integrated Circuit designer working in various research and industry-funded projects in the field of optical fiber communications. She obtained her PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Berlin in 2019. Before joining INL, from October 2018 to July 2020 she was a Hardware Design Engineer at Cisco, Germany. Her main research focus has been the end-to-end development of Gb/s front-ends for optical transceivers such as driver circuits and transimpedance amplifiers in bipolar and advanced FinFET technologies. She has authored and co-authored more than 30 high impact peer-reviewed articles in the circuit design field. In 2016 she was recognized with the best student paper award at the BiCMOS circuits and technology meeting (BCTM), Miami, USA. She has co-authored one filed patent and has also been involved in lecturing of broadband circuit design techniques at the TU Berlin.
