Dr. Juan Pereiro (JP) received a PhD in Physics at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM-ISOM) in November 2009, researching on wide band gap semiconductor, growth, fabrication, device design and characterization. Following his PhD, he was appointed as a research fellow in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and worked as a visiting scientist in Brookhaven National Laboratory (NY, USA) at Dr. Ivan Bozovic’s Molecular Beam Epitaxy group. His work was focused on the growth and characterization of high temperature superconductors. JP studied La2-xSrxCuO4 nanostructure formation, participated in the discovery of a metal to insulator transition in WO3 thin films, and applied Low Energy Electron Microscopy (LEEM) to the imaging of viruses and superconducting structures. Next, JP was appointed as a post-doctoral fellow at UCSD (San Diego, CA, USA) in Prof. Ivan K. Schuller’s group, where he worked on the growth and characterization of superconductors and magnetic materials. JP participated in the discovery of a new magnetic material.
