Platform Leader

Dr Neus Domingo obtained her degree in physics and her PhD at the University of Barcelona in 2000 and 2005 respectively. Later on, she joined the Istituto di Struttura della Materia (CNR) in Rome, Italy (2005-2007). In 2008, she started working at the CIN2 as a Juan de la Cierva Researcher and in 2011 she became a member of the ON group holding a Ramon y Cajal Research Grant.

Dr Domingo can count on a strong materials science background, spanning from molecular magnetism and nanoparticles to piezo- and ferro-electricity and nanoscale electromechanical phenomena, with special emphasis on surface science. She considers herself a nanotechnologist and an AFM enthusiastic. Her current research interest lies in the field of scanning probe microscopy of functional materials and ferroics, and physical chemistry of ferroelectric surfaces.
