    Eva Céspedes obtained her BSc in Pheysics (2004) from the Universidad Complutense of Madrid and MSc (2006) from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. She joined the group of Prof. Carlos Prieto (CSIC-I3P Postgraduate fellowship) at the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid, where she gained expertise in nano-materials and thin films for spintronics, obtaining her PhD in 2009. In 2010 her interest in new functional materials moved her to renewable energies (EU project “New solar collector concept for high temperature operation in CSP applications”) at ICMM. Between 2012 and 2014, she joined the group headed by Dr Neil Telling at Keele University, UK (Spanish Ministry Postdoctoral Grant) gathering interdisciplinary experience in biomedical applications and magnetic nanoparticles based therapies. She got a Research Award by the North Staffordshire Medical Institute. In April 2014, she joined IMDEA Nanoscience, working within the EU project “Nanopyme” based on permanent magnets without rare-earth materials. Since 2015, she is a Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral fellow within the Nanoscience for critical raw materials group, headed by Dr. A. Bollero. Along her career, she has participated in 21 experiments with synchrotron radiation.

    EC has interdisciplinary expertise and varied research interests related to advanced functional materials, thin films and nanostructures, with 38 publications in Material Science.

    • She investigated the magnetism of Mn-Zn-O and M-Si3N4, aimed at finding room temperature ferromagnetic in wide band gap materials. Her innovative approach in solar energy based on a pioneering combination of materials led to improved energy efficiency (lead author of a patent). She has also
      Her research at IMDEA within the Nanoscience for critical raw materials group is based on the field of permanent magnets without rare-earth materials. In particular, she is focused on magnetic thin films, such as Mn-based alloys prepared by PVD (magnetron-sputtering) with a combined objective: model systems for further understanding of the magnetic properties of bulk systems joined to the technological interest of permanent magnets at the nanoscale. From her research within the EU project “Nanopyme” she has been able to tune the magnetic characteristics of SrFe12O19 layers and improve its magneto-structural understanding combining experiments and simulations.
