Carlos Garcia Nuñez is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the group of Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) at the University of Glasgow. In 2009, he received a B.S. degree in Physics from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM). One year later, he finished a M.S. in Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology at the Department of Applied Physics (UAM). In 2010, he joined the Group of Electronics and Semiconductors (ELySE) at UAM, and one year later he became a Fellowship Researcher (FPI fellowship belonging to the MINECO-Spain) at ELySE. In 2015, he obtained a Ph.D in physics (summa "cum laude").
He has published above 30 articles – 25 as first author – in Journals and peer-reviewed International Conferences. He regularly assists to international conferences to give lectures (so far, 2 per year). He received the Spanish FPI Fellowship during his PhD. He has actively participated in multidisciplinary research projects, including sensors and biosensors based on Zn3N2, IR/VIS/UV Photodetectors based on ZnO and Ga(As,N) nanowires, and multi-band Solar Cells. He carried out two visiting researches for three months at The University of Alabama (characterization of GaAs nanowires TEM and Raman spectroscopy), and The Walter Schottky Institut (fabrication of functionalized ZnO nanowires based liquid gate field effect transistors). From both stays, he has published 4 peer-reviewed journal articles – all as first author – which points out his initiative, capacity to learn new knowledge and work in new environments, and skills to solve individually issues found during every research project.
