Pablo Albella
University of Cantabria

Brief Bio
Pablo Albella holds a prestigious researcher position (RyC) at Univ. of Cantabria (Spain) and visiting researcher of the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London. Before, he was senior research associate for 4 years at Imperial College London and 3 years at the Material Physics Center in San Sebastian. His research interests and activities are mainly devoted to the fields of nanophotonics and materials science. In particular, he is focused in two different topics, plasmonics and HRI all-dielectric systems where designing, modelling and innovating nanostructures to enhance light-mat ter interaction is essential when aiming at enhancing the actual sensing and spectroscopy applications, biosensing, optical nanocircuits or customized metamaterials. He holds several prizes and he is co-author of more than 60 publications with around 3000 citation. Albella is also member of the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports, Nature Pub.Group. ... More >>

Maria Raposo

Brief Bio
Maria Raposo received the Ph.D. degree in Materials Sciences and Engineering by Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil in 1999 and, since 2000, is professor at Physics Department of Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, lecturing Solid State Physics, Surface and Interfaces Technology, Conducting Polymers, Molecular Electronics and Physics of Functional Macromolecular Systems.
