I studied in the University of Chile, Chile, where I obtained my BSc. in physics (2010), and my MSc. (2013). I spent one month in the Instituto Balseiro, Argentina, working in ferromagnetic resonance of FePt film and this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship with magnetism. My master's thesis was related to the study of magnetic properties of metallic films deposited on nanoporous substrates (alumina) and how these properties, like coercive field, change as a function of the porous size and their separation.

At present I work in time resolved imaging of spin transfer vortex oscillators, towards active magnetic microwave metamaterials in the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in metamaterials, here in the University of Exeter with Dr. R. J. Hicken and Dr F. Ogrin. The aim of this project is to image the magnetization dynamics in the vicinity of the spin valve point contact devices for which injection of DC current leads to the formation of vortices and their gyration due to the action of spin transfer torque.

If you want to have a chat about my magnetism, physics or whatever you think can be an interesting talk or collaboration, please do not hesitate to contact me.
