I completed my M.Eng. in Telecommunication Engineering in 2015 in the Public University of Navarra (Spain). At the beginning of my Master thesis, I was awarded a collaboration grant from the electronical engineering department in order to study fishnet structures based on the Extraordinary Transmission phenomenon, by means of simulation software CST Microwave Studio TM, as part of my master thesis.
My master thesis was titled "Design, simulation, manufacturing and measurement of metamaterial lenses coupled to horn antennas", under the supervision of Dr. Miguel Beruete Díaz and Dr. Jorge Teniente Vallinas. In this project, a system made by a horn antenna and a metamaterial fishnet lens based on Extraordinary Transmission is shown. The project was marked with a Honours distinction, generating several communications submitted to three international congresses.
Shortly after, I worked as an IT auditor at PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PwC) in Madrid and after a year, I joined the School of Physics and Astronomy in the University of Exeter as a PhD researcher in magnetisation dynamics.
My research interests are mainly related to high frequency tuneable magnonic devices in the range of microwaves and spin wave logic. My PhD research (supervised by Prof. Feodor Y. Ogrin and Prof. Alastair P. Hibbins) was based on how to model, control and enhance the emission of very short wavelength spin waves in non-saturated magnetic nanostructures. Efficiently controlling their propagation is fundamental for the developing of frequency agile devices based on new computing paradigms.
As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, I work in applied research in electromagnetics for an industrial project. The research is based on the use of metamaterials for RADAR cloaking and antenna measurements.
