Amalio Fernández-Pacheco is Group Leader at the Institute of Nanoscience & Materials of Aragón, a mixed centre of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the University of Zaragoza.
Before this position, he spent a total of 12 years in UK universities. First, working at Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge, within the group of Russell Cowburn. And during the last years at the University of Glasgow, where he was an Associate Professor.
His research is focused on the advanced investigation of three-dimensional magnetic nanostructures for applications in spintronics, combining primarily advanced nanofabrication, thin film deposition and magneto-optical and X-ray techniques.
Among his awards, he has been a Marie Curie Fellow, an EPSRC Early Career Fellow and a Winton Advanced Research Fellow. Since October 2021, he leads the ERC Consolidator Project 3D NANOMAG, dedicated to the advanced investigation of novel effects in three dimensional magnetic nanostructures.
