New scientist at the Materials Science Institute of Madrid. Miguel Muñoz just joined 2dFoundry and will work with Carmen Munuera and Andrés Castellanos. He is from Murcia (Spain) and has previously worked at the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology. We asked him to present himself. Here you have his short bio: 

Miguel Muñoz

"I received my PhD (2015) in Condensed Matter Physics & Nanotechnology from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and M.S./B.S. in Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid. I obtained a JAE pre-doctoral Fellowship from CSIC to study during my PhD how the reduction of dimensionality affects the transport properties of organic and inorganic thermoelectric materials. During this period of time, I carried out scientific stays at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (New York, USA), the University of Bordeaux (France) and the University of California Berkeley (USA). In 2012, I participated in the 62nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Physics after qualifying in an international competition among young talent scientists. From 2016 to 2018, I became a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, studying two-dimensional (2D) materials and devices based on them for thermal, electrical, and thermoelectric applications. From 2018 to 2021, I was a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at the University of Twente. I was successful in obtaining funding for my research in the field of thermal conversion and management processes with national and international academic and industrial partners. I am now a permanent researcher (científico titular) at the National Research Council of Spain (CSIC) working at the Institute of Materials Science in Madrid (ICMM). My research line focuses on solid-state thermal management, energy harvesting and nano- and micro-scale thermometry".
