Manuel Vázquez has been a Professor of Research in the Spanish Council for Research (CSIC) since 1996. He was responsible of many scientific and technological projects on the magnetism of nano- and microwires, and has supervised 35 Ph.D. students and numerous visiting scientists. He is coauthor of over 600 publications and 23 patents, and has contributed to several books, including as editor of Magnetic Nano- and Microwires (Elsevier, 2015 and 2020). After defending his Ph.D. at the Complutense University of Madrid, he was an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute für Metallforschung and at the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, under a NATO research grant. He was the Head of Laboratory at the Institute of Applied Magnetism, IMA (1992-2000) and Manager of the Spanish Strategic Action on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (2004-2009). He established the Group of Nanomagnetism and Magnetization Processes at ICMM/CSIC (2001). Prof. Vázquez has actively volunteered in international activities, particularly those of the IEEE Magnetics Society: He founded the society’s Spain Chapter in 2007, was chair of the Intermag Conference in 2008, and served as President in 2017-2018. He received the society’s Distinguished Service Award in 2021. For the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), he served as Secretary of the Magnetism Commission and as Program Chair of the International Conference on Magnetism (ICM) in 2015. He was one of the three co-founders of the Club Español de Magnetismo in 2002 and received its Salvador Velayos Award in 2016.
