Dr. José Miguel García-Martín is a research scientist in the Spanish National Research Council, CSIC, and he works at the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology (Madrid). He is a co-founder of Nanostine, a spin-off company that fabricates nanoparticles and nanostructured coatings by sputtering. He serves as the chair of the Spanish Chapter of the Magnetics Society.
He obtained his PhD in physics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 1999 with a thesis on magnetic nanowires and microtubes. He then spent about three years at the Solid-State Physics Lab at Paris XI University (France) on a Marie Curie fellowship working on magnetic force microscopy and micromagnetism. He joined CSIC in 2003. In 2017 he was Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Northeastern University (Boston). Currently, he studies metal and metal-oxide nanostructures with applications in magnetics, plasmonics, and biomedicine.
José Miguel has coordinated several international projects with partners in the U.S., France, Greece, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, and Colombia. He led the Nanoimplant project, which in 2014 won the IDEA2Madrid Award, a partnership of the Madrid Government and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has co-authored about 100 articles, 3 patents, and 6 book chapters, and has given about 40 invited talks.
