Dr Garcia-Pomar is, currently, Marie Curie Fellow at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory.

He holds a PhD from the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (CSIC) and during his career, he carried out several postdoctoral fellowships at Fraunhofer Institute in Germany or the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) among others.

Dr Garcia-Pomar has been co-author of more than 30 publications which have been cited more than 750 times (SCOPUS). He has more than 25 conference contributions (i.e. invited talk to Metamaterials 2018, SPIE Photonic West, etc.).

The main research topics of Dr Garcia-Pomar are nanophotonics and plasmonics in metasurfaces and 2-D materials. He was awarded several fellowships, recently (2018) he has obtained a Marie Curie grant. Previously, he was awarded different grants in competitive calls as

  • I3P CSIC Program (4 years),
  • Mobility program for doctors in foreign countries MEC (Fraunhofer Institute, 13 months),
  • Postdoctoral JAE-DOC Program CSIC(3 years)
  • and the Iberoamerican Scholarships for young researchers from Foundation Bank Santander (University of Chile, 3 months).
