Dr. José María Porro Azpiazu has joined BCMaterials in October 2017. He graduated in Physics (Spanish “licenciatura en física) in 2008, and obtained his MSc in Nanoscience in 2010, both from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). He joined the nanomagnetism group at CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain), where he developed the work that led to his PhD title from the University of the Basque Country in 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Vavassori. After that he joined the magnetism group at the ISIS department of the Rutherford Appleton National Laboratory (RAL) of the UK as a postdoctoral researcher, supervised by Prof. Sean Langridge.
His research focuses on the static and dynamic properties of interacting ferromagnetic nanostructures in general, with a deeper knowledge about artificial spin-ice systems. He is author and co-author of 12 articles in peer-reviewed indexed journals, receiving about 190 citations (h-index of 8), and has given several invited and contributed oral communications in international conferences and workshops.
Interests and objetives
Currently, I am involved in the study of the effect of patterning in the properties of magnetic shape memory alloys thanks to a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship obtained through the EU Horizon2020 program.
My other interests lie in the fields of nanofabrication (by means of both electron-beam and photolitography), micromagnetism and magnetization dynamics.
