About Prof. Veronica Salgueiriño

Institution: Department of Applied Physics University of Vigo

Verónica Salgueiriño obtained her Ph.D. degree in 2003. Her work, supervised by Luis M. Liz-Marzán, focused on silica-coated gold nanoparticles in particular ordered arrays, which allowed the study of the optical properties displayed. After two years of post-doc, first in Universität Duisburg-Essen (Germany) (group of M. Farle), then in Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering - Arizona State University, (USA, group of R. Díaz), she joined the Nanomag Group (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, group of J. Rivas / M. A. López-Quintela) as a IPP researcher to work on incorporating diverse functionalities into a single nanoparticle. In 2008 she was awarded the L'Oréal-UNESCO (Women in Science) National Award. In March 2009 she joined the Universidade de Vigo as a Ramon y Cajal fellow leading the Magnetic Materials group she initiated. She is an associate professor at the Department of Applied Physics, since May 2017.
