Wagner Rosa is an Associated Researcher at Departamento de Física Aplicada in the University of Granada (UGR). Graduated in Physics from Universidade Federal Fluminense (2003), he obtained his PhD in Applied Physics in 2009 at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). His work was based on the fabrication of magnetic nanostructures using aluminium anodization processes. In 2010, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at Oviedo University (UniOvi), in Oviedo (Spain), working on phase transitions of ferromagnetic shape memory alloys and nanowires. From 2011 to early 2017, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at Brazilian Center for Physical Research (CBPF), in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), working on generation of pure spin currents in graphene monolayers using magnetic oxides.
Currently, Wagner has been working on the design and characterization of abrasive magnetic suspensions for high precision finishing. The main goal of this project is to design and develop a magneto-microfluidic system in order to perform polishing of microchannels with a complex geometry and to characterize this process. The polishing process will be done using magnetic nanoparticles with abrasive properties.
He has taught experimental physics for undergraduate students, during his period in Brazil, at Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp). In 2004, he was one of the main organizers of the 5th Young Physicists Meeting, held in Campinas (Brazil)
