Sebastián Reparaz

I am a physicist with a strong background in nanoscale thermal transport and optical spectroscopy. My research focuses on studying the thermal properties of inorganic/organic nanostructures through advanced characterization techniques. In recent years I focused in developing novel thermal experimental methodologies based on contactless optical techniques.

I work at the NANOPTO research group, Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting, at ICMAB-CSIC. 

Riccardo Rurali

I am a materials scientist, whose main interests revolve around the theoretical modeling of fundamental physical phenomena in condensed matter and nanostructures. My research activity focuses on nanoscale thermal transport and one the role of nanostructured materials in the engineering of phononic devices as thermal circuits elements.

I work at the Laboratory of Electronic Structure of Materials (LEEM) research group at ICMAB-CSIC. 

Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC)

The organizers, Sebastián Reparaz and Riccardo Rurali, are ICMAB-CSIC researchers.

ICMAB-CSIC is an international research center focused on advanced functional materials in the fields of sustainable energy, next-generation electronics and smart nanomedicine.

We are located at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) campus, surrounded by other research and technological centres and with access to many state-of-the art equipment and scientific facilities.
