Pablo Albella
University of Cantabria

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, from 2013 to 2017 senior research associate at Imperial College London, U.K. and tenure-track researcher at University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. 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. ...
