Mario Amado is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics since Sept 2018. He received a PhD in condensed matter physics from the University Complutense of Madrid, Spain where he studied the electronic and structure and transport properties in graphene and nanoscopic systems. After completing his PhD, he worked at the Istituto Nanoscienze and Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy where his research was focused on the generation of lateral Josephson junctions based on standard superconductors coupled to high spin-orbit coupling materials.
He moved to Cambridge in September 2014 where he has been a PDRA and a Marie Curie Research Fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy under the supervision of Professor M. Blamire and Dr J. Robinson working on ferromagnetic insulators and induced topology in layered 2D-materials.His actual research combines the scientific expertise gained during his whole research career and involves the generation of topological 2-dimensional materials proximity coupled to magnetic layers.
