Prof. Mar Garcia Hernandez
Prof Hernandez is Research Professor at CSIC Instituto de CiencIa de Materiales de Madrid where she leads the Magnetism and Magnetotransport Laboratory. She graduated from Universidad Complutense de Madrid and worked for her PhD in Molecular Physics at CSIC Instituto de Estructura de la Materia while collaborationg with the Cavendish Laboratory, The J Heyrovskiy Institute in Prague and EPFL. As a postdoc, she started her work in experimental condensed matter physics, exploring excitations in disordered materials at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Back to Spain, she started working in highly
correlated materials and heterostructures. Recently, she started work on 2D materials and coordinates the work on graphene by several groups in the Graphene Flagship where she leads the Enabling Materials Work Package. She is the Scientific Director of the Nationwide Contest Arquimedes to encourage students to do research at the very early state of their careers. She has published near 250 publications in international journals.
