Dr. Álvaro Muñoz Noval
Álvaro obtained his Ph.D in Physics in 2011 from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) under the supervision of Profs. Miguel Manso, Raul Martín Palma y Josefa P. García. He held postdoctoral positions at Instituto de Cerámica y Vidrio (ICV-CSIC), ESRF (Grenoble, France) and at the Hiroshima University (Japan). In 2017 he joined the Group of Superconductivity and Thin Films at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Since 2019 he is a TALENTO-CM Senior Research fellow and in 2021 he became Associated Scientist at IMDEA Nanociencia.
His research has been mainly dedicated to the development X-ray techniques and applying X-ray spectroscopy to the study of materials. His research interest includes studying the interaction of superconductors and magnetic materials with reduced dimensionality (nanostructured) by combining transport, magnetic and synchrotron techniques.
