Overview                                    Curriculum Vitae

Manuel Vazquez is Professor of Research of the Spanish National Council for Research, CSIC (1996). He has been responsible of many scientific and technological projects on the magnetism of nano and microwires, supervised 34 PhD students and numerous visiting scientists. He is co-author of over 600 publications (h=52), with 13000 citations, and 23 patents, and contributed to several book chapters, particularly editing the book “Magnetic Nano and Microwires” (Woodhouse Publ. Elsevier, Cambridge, 2015, pp.1–824). After defending his PhD by Complutense University of Madrid (1980), he stayed as post-doc in Max-Planck-Institute für Metallforschung (1981-3, Alexander von Humboldt) and Technical Univ. Denmark, Lyngby (1985 NATO Research grant).

He was Head of Laboratory at the Institute of Applied Magnetism, IMA (1992-2000), and set up the Group of Nanomagnetism and Magnetization Processes at the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid, ICMM/CSIC (from 2001).     Prof. Vazquez was the Manager of the National Spanish Strategic Action on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (2004-9). He has actively volunteered to international actions particularly in the IEEE Magnetics Society (Chair Intermag2008, founder of Spain Chapter), and IUPAP (Secretary Commission on Magnetism; Program Chair ICM2015). He is the recipient of the Salvador Velayos Magnetism Award 2016, and currently the President of the IEEE Magnetics Society (2017-8).
