STAFF / COLLABORATOR RESEARCHER
Fernando Vereda is Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Physics at the University of Granada (UGR). He got his PhD in 2001 at Tufts University (Massachusetts, USA) with a work that focused on lithium phosphorus oxynitride as an electrolyte for thin film lithium ion batteries. In 2005 he started working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Granada and in November 2016 he became an Associate Professor. He has been a visiting scholar at the Engineering School of Brown University (Rhode Island, USA) during the summer of 2019. He is a member of the American Physical Society and the ‘Real Sociedad Española de Física’.
His work in Granada, for more than 15 years, has focused on magnetic fluids. He has synthesized magnetic particles, mainly iron oxides, and studied the effect of particle shape and particle surface morphology of the properties of magnetorheological fluids (MRFs). He has also studied magnetic hydrogels and magnetic ternary suspensions. He has participated as PI and collaborator in numerous national and international research projects.
He teaches Biophysics (Degree in Physics) and General Physics (Degree in Building Engineering) at the undergraduate level, and Electron Microscopy at the postgraduate level (Master in Physics). Currently, he is the academic coordinator of that master program. He has supervised 4 master’s thesis. He serves as a reviewer in several international journals.
