Welcome to Kapil Gupta, our new microscopist postdoc researcher!


I am Kapil Gupta from India, where I received my PhD (Physics) in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, and later on, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Taiwan. I have recently joined the SUMAN group as a postdoc, to collaborate on the TEM studies of superconducting thin films in ULTRASUPERTAPE project, under the supervision of Prof. Teresa Puig. I am delighted to be here and looking forward to learn and collaborate with all of you.

Welcome to Diana and Lavinia, new PhD students!

Hola! We are Diana and Lavinia, the new PhD students. We are both chemists and we recently started our work in the field of superconductivity in SUMAN group. Even though one of us is from Barcelona (Diana) and the other one is from Rome (Lavinia), we got to know each other last year during our Master Thesis carried out in the same research group in UAB. We are happy to be part of the group and looking forward to working with all of you!

Welcome to Jordi Alcalà, our new PhD student!

Hi! My name is Jordi and I am from Reus. Last year I did an internship here at ICMAB for my Master Thesis working on Hybrid Magnetic-Superconducting devices under the supervision of Dr. Anna Palau. Now I have joined the SUMAN group as a Project PhD student working on the advanced physical and structural characterizations of the YBCO films in Resisitive Switching and in the EUROFUSION project under the supervision of Dr. Anna Palau and Dr. Narcís Mestres. I like science, playing all kind of sports but basketball in particular and going to the mountain in order to relax and enjoy the nature. I am really glad to be part of this team and I hope to learn, help and have fun with you!
