Conference Co-Chairs


Pablo Albella
University of Cantabria
Spain


Brief Bio
Pablo Albella holds a prestigious researcher position (RyC), at the University of Cantabria and is invited researcher at Imperial College London. He holds a PhD in Physics since 2009 awarded with the prize of best thesis in physics that year. He was postdoctoral researcher from 2010 to 2013 at the Material Physics Center (UPV/CSIC) in San Sebastian and from 2013 to 2017 senior research associate at Imperial College London, UK. His research interests and activities are mainly devoted to the fields of nanophotonics and materials science. In particular, to the optical modelling and innovation of photonic structures able to enhance the performance of the actual nanodevices that rely on light-matter interaction to boost applications like sensing, spectroscopy, optical nanocircuits, customized metamaterials or energy storage. He aims to, not only the electromagnetic understanding and application of plasmonics, but also to open new fascinating possibilities in the field using novel nanostructures made of alternative materials. ...

Program Co-Chairs


Domenico de Ceglia
University of Padova
Italy


Brief Bio
Domenico de Ceglia earned his PhD degree in “Electromagnetic fields” at Politecnico di Bari, Italy. In 2012 he was awarded with a National Research Council Fellowship by the US National Academies to work as a Senior Research Associate at the Charles M. Bowden Laboratory of US Army AMRDEC, Redstone Arsenal (AL) – USA.
