Julio Camarero received his PhD in physics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1999. He then worked at Institut Neel-CNRS France (Marie- Curie Fellow and scientific contracts) before returning to UAM in 2003 as Ramon y Cajal research fellow. JC is currently Associate Professor of the Condensed Matter Physics Department. In 2008 he joined IMDEA Nanoscience as Associated Senior Scientist, lead- ing the Nanomagnetism Program.
JC has coordinated National Regional and European projects and has published more than 80 peer-reviewed papers (> 1600 cites, h-index: 22) 11 book chapters, 4 invited papers, and 1 EU patent. 25 invited talks at international conferences (150 other conference presentations). JC is a frequently invited scientist in different Synchrotron Radiation Facilities.
The current scientific interest of Dr. Julio Camarero includes the preparation and characterization of artificial magnetic (inorganic and organic) nanostructures, as well as the development of novel experimental techniques. Particular attention is devoted to studies on quasi-static and dynamic magnetization reversal processes and magnetoresitive responses. His goal is to acquire a better understanding of the fundamental physics of new functional properties of magnetic nanostructures that are important, or may become important, for applications in information-storage, spintronics, and biomedicine areas.
