Luis Brey’s interests are in the areas of mesoscopic physics, two-dimensional electron gas, diluted magnetic semiconductors, quantum Hall effects and complex oxides. In the last years his research has focussed on the study of electronic properties of manganites, graphene and topological insulators.
Luis Brey obtained his phD in Condensed Matter Physics at the University Autónoma de Madrid in 1987. He then spent two years at Harvard University as post-doc and two years as assistant professor at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. In 1993 he joined the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid-CSIC. He was guest scientist for several periods in the Max Plank Institute at Stuttgart, at ATT-Bell Laboratories at Murray Hill and visiting professor at Cambridge University.
