Research Fellow

Javier Alonso received his PhD in Physics from the University of Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in November 2010 subsequently working as a postdoctoral researcher both at the UPV/EHU and at the Basque Center for Materials, Applications and Nanostructures (BCMaterials), Bilbao, Spain. He has secured a postdoctoral fellowship from the Basque Government in order to work for 2 years (2014-2015) at the University of South Florida and 1 year back at the BCMaterials (2016). His main interests are in magnetic nanostructures, thin films, and magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications, among others. He has published over 25 papers and participated in several international conferences, receiving 2 awards for his presentations.


Interests and objectives:

Currently I’m working at the Functional Materials Laboratory (FML) Tampa, USA, thanks to a post-doctoral grant from the Basque Government. I’m mainly involved on the magnetic analysis of systems of interacting magnetic nanoparticles. I’m also working in the synthesis and characterization of novel mutltifunctional nanoparticles for biomedical applications (magnetic hyperthermia…).
I’m also interested in the field of X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy, with experiments performed at Synchrotrons.
