About M.V. Ramallo
- Ph.D in Physics 1997 ("Multilayered Ginzburg-Landau-Gaussian theory for high temperature thermal fluctuations in superconductors under weak magnetic fields", supervised by Prof. Félix Vidal of the University of Santiago, USC)
- From 1997 to 2000, several postdoc fellowships to conduct research in the group of Prof. A.J. Leggett (awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2003) at the Univ. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. This includes a prestigious MEC-Fulbright scholarship, obtained as best candidate in Materials Science among all the Spanish applicants for MEC scholarships in the USA. Currently, the collaboration with Prof. Leggett continues in the context of the ongoing doctoral work of J.C. Verde (supervised by M.V. Ramallo in Spain, includes stays in the USA with A.J. Leggett).
- Since 2003, Profesor Titular (tenure position for research and teaching) at the USC University (Area of Condensed Matter Physics, currently in the Particle Physics Department).
- Since June 2014, Coordinator of the LBTS Research Group LBTS of the USC (group code GI-1487).
- Deputy Scientific Director (and member of the Steering Committee) of the Strategic Association of Physics (AEFIS) since its formation by the end of 2015.
- Co-author of 56 papers in international journals, 3 books, 3 book chapters, and 45 conference contributions (10 oral presentations, 1 International congress organizer).
- Participation in 30 national and international research projects (head researcher in 3 of them).
- Phenomenology of superconductors (high temperature superconductors and other).
- Effects of the layered structure in superconductors.
- Critical phenomena around the superconducting transition.
- Micro and nano-structured superconductors.
- Mixed superconducting systems (superconductor + piezoelectric, superconductor + ionic liquid).
b) Other materials and functional systems:
- Filtration of nanofluids of biomedical interest by means of nanofuncionalized microfilters.
- Cryogenic nanofluids.
While at the beginning of his career he specialized in theoretical aspects (Ginzburg-Landau models), eventually he broadened his methodological approach, currently having experience in sample synthesis (superconducting thin films, etc), experimental measurements (mainly electrical and magnetic properties), phenomenological comparisons between experiments and theories, and theoretical studies (both analytical and computational).
