Dr. Leonard Deepak Francis is a group leader in the Department of Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (Braga, Portugal). His broad area of research is focused on the use of advanced electron microscopic techniques for the study of materials/nanomaterials for various applications, as well as in the study of fundamental physical phenomena and dynamics at the nanoscale. He also employs the Focused Ion Beam (FIB) technique extensively towards the investigations of nanodevices. He received his Ph.D. in 2005 from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore, India and was a postdoctoral fellow (2006–2008) at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.

 

Dr. Enrique Carbó-Argibay

Electron Microscopy Facility Manager, Dept. of Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy |  INL - International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory - Braga, Portugal. 

Email: enrique.carbo@inl.int | Web: http://inl.int/members/81

 Dr. Enrique Carbó-Argibay is an Electron Microscopy Facility Manager in the Department of Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (Braga, Portugal). He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Vigo in 2011. In April 2013, he joined INL as postdoctoral researcher to work on synthesis and electron microscopy characterization of nanomaterials. Then, he worked on extracting structural and chemical information (with high spatial resolution) from nanomaterials, by means of advanced electron microscopy imaging (AC-TEM, AC-STEM) and spectroscopy (EELS, EDX) techniques.

Anumol Ashokkumar

Postdoctoral Fellow, Dept. of Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy |  INL - International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory - Braga, Portugal. 

Email: anumol.ashok@inl.int |

Anumol obtained her PhD (2013) in Materials Science from Indian Institute of Science Bangalore under the supervision of Prof. N. Ravishankar, based on her work on mechanisms of formation and thermal stability of functional nanostructures. She held a postdoctoral fellowship (2013-2015) in the Applied Materials Science Division of Department of Engineering Sciences at Uppsala University Sweden, with Prof. Klaus Leifer. Her research at Uppsala University involved synthesis, assembly and electrical characterization of semiconductor hetero-nanostructures and transmission electron microscopy. In August 2015, she moved to INL as a postdoctoral fellow to work on 3D-Tomography-Spectroscopy.

 

Sebastian Calderon

Postdoctoral Researcher, Physics department, University of Minho – Guimaraes, Portugal.

Postdoctoral Visitor Researcher, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory - Braga, Portugal.

Email: secave44@gmail.com

Sebastian Calderon obtained his PhD (2016) in Materials Engineering from The University of Minho, with a special European Mention due to the development of his work at the University of Groningen Netherlands. His work emphasizes on the development of nanostructures for biomedical and food packaging materials. Currently, he is focusing on electron microscopy techniques to understand the effect of metal nanoparticles coupling to enhance oxidation and ionization, work partially develop at the INL as visitor in the department of Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy.
