Engineering Sciences

Jose A. Garrido is an ICREA Research Professor at the Catalan Institute of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology-ICN2 in Barcelona, and head of the Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices group. He received a Master and PhD degree in Telecommunication Engineering from the Technical University of Madrid, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. From 2001 to 2004, he worked as a postdoc at the Walter Schottky Institute, Technische Universität München, where he obtained his habilitation in experimental physics in 2010. From 2011 to 2015, Jose A. Garrido held a lecturer (privatdozent) position at the department of physics of the Technische Universität München. In September 2015, Jose A. Garrido joined ICN2 as ICREA Professor. Currently, Jose A. Garrido is vicedirector and head of the Strategy Development Office at ICN2. 

Research interests

Jose A. Garrido leads the Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices group at ICN2. The activities of the team focus on technology and material science of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on graphene and other 2D materials. In addition, the team works towards the development of technological applications of these materials in electronics, bioelectronics, and biosensing. The activities cut across different scientific aspects, from fundamentals (physics of devices and semiconductors) to materials (growth of graphene and 2D materials, surface functionalization, advanced characterization), through devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication), and to applications (biosensors, neural implants and biomedical technologies, energy storage and conversion).
