Isabel Cristina Arango Gutierrez
Isabel obtained her Master's degree in Materials Engineering at Universidad del Valle in Cali, Colombia in 2017, with an emphasis on the growth of thin films by Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) techniques. Her research project focused on the electro-magnetic transport properties of perovskites such as La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 and BiFeO3 and was supervised by Prof. Gómez de Prieto. She worked two years in the Hard Coating Laboratory at SENA (Colombian National Training Service) using the magnetron-sputtering technique.
In 2018 Isabel obtained an Intel fellowship to begin her PhD studies at CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain) under the supervision of Prof. Casanova within the FEIMAN project. She is currently working on the nanofabrication of spintronic devices, specifically on spin-to-charge conversion phenomena in highly resistive and sputtered materials to be integrated in the magneto-electric spin-orbit (MESO) logic device.
