Administrative Roles

Dr. Quintanilla currently organises the SPS Seminars and Colloquia.



Dr. Quintanilla received his Physics education at the University of Salamanca in his native Spain (Licenciado, 1992-1997) and at the University of Bristol (PhD, 1997-2001). He then moved to Brazil, where he held a postdoctoral position in the University of Sao Paulo at Sao Carlos (2002). One year later Dr. Quintanilla moved back to the U.K. to take up a research fellowship at the University of Birmingham (2003-2005). After that, he became the Atlas Research Fellow in Condensed Matter Theory at the ISIS Facility in the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, in Harwell (2005-2010). His association with that laboratory continues to this day.

Dr. Quintanilla has been an Individual Marie Curie Fellow; a Fellow of St. Catherine’s College, Oxford; and an honorary research associate of the London Centre for Nanotechnology. He also chaired SEPnet's Atomic and Condensed Matter research theme (07/2010-02/2012).
