María Luisa Fernández-Gubieda
Senior Research Associate
Prof. Dr. Mª Luisa Fernández-Gubieda is an expert in the field of magnetism and magnetic materials. In the last 10 years, she has been mainly involved in the study on nanogranular thin films and nanoparticle systems. Recently, she has developed a new research line on magnetotactic bacteria, with the aim to study the biomineralization process of magnetite nanoparticles and the viability of these nanoparticles for biomedical applications. One of her main activities is the use of Large Scale Facilities specially Synchrotron radiation, being one of the promoters of the beamline “Core level absorption and Emission Spectroscopies” at the Spanish synchrotron ALBA. At present, she is the head of the group of Magnetism and Magnetic materials in the University of Basque Country. She has published over 90 articles in scientific journals, receiving more than 700 citations (h-index=15). She has supervised 4 PhD Thesis.

Interests and objectives:
Currently, she is Professor of Applied Physics at the University of the Basque Country ascribed to BCMaterials and the leader of the Group of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials of the Basque Country.
At present, she is involved in a rearch line on magnetotactic bacteria with two main topics. First, to understand the biomineralization process of the magnetite nanoparticle synthesize by the bacteria and second, to study the viability of these nanoparticles for biomedical application.
