I am a senior staff scientist at the Institute of Materials Science of Aragón, within the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and I am affiliated to the Department of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Zaragoza.
I hold a Laurea (Bachelor’s degree) from the University of Camerino (1996) and a joint PhD degree awarded by the Universities of Leiden and Zaragoza (2001). I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leiden (2001–2004) and the CNR Institute of Nanoscience in Modena (2004–2009), before joining the Institute of Materials Science of Aragón as a "Ramón y Cajal" CSIC Fellow. I tenured as a CSIC scientist in 2010, becoming senior scientist in 2017.
I am an experimental physicist with a keen interest in magnetocaloric and electrocaloric materials and in the development of advanced instrumentation.
I have a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Arizona. My research experience is centered in two topics: purification of biomolecules and bionanotechnology. Sometimes I perform simulation of chemical and biochemical processes.

Artem Mishchenko is a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Physics and Astronomy, the University of Manchester. His research interests are in the fields of condensed matter physics and nanotechnology, with the emphasis on quantum transport in van der Waals materials; in addition, he has strong expertise in electronics, nanoelectromechanical systems, and instrumentation development. The major contributions to these fields have been published in over 70 peer-referred papers, many in Science and Nature journals, leading to more than 12000 citations and h-index of 33. He is regularly invited to present his results on international conferences; he also leads the collaboration between Manchester and High Magnetic Field Facilities in Europe. He has initiated several new research directions, such as a tunnelling and capacitance spectroscopy of van der Waals heterostructures, and nanoelectromechanics in 2D materials; his works led to the development of many new functional devices, including nanoscale transistors and photovoltaic sensors. As a recognition of his achievements, he has received several prestigious awards including SNSF Fellowship, EPSRC Early Career Fellowship, and EMFL Prize 2018. He is also named in 2018 list of Highly Cited Researchers from Clarivate Analytics.
Professor of Physics, head of the nanomat group, quantum materials center (Q-MAT) of the CESAM research unit.
Chair of Steering Committee, European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility. Elected Fellow APS, Young Academy of Europe.
Dr. Wallen earned a B.S. and Ph.D. from the Univ. of Illinois. He studied supercritical fluids at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory using a variety of spectroscopic techniques including NMR, XAFS, Raman and FTIR spectroscopy. The author of over 50 refereed papers his work has been highlighted in Science and C&E News. He has served as a reviewer for top journals and government science panels. Dr. Wallen is currently on the staff at Florida Polytechnic University. His research interests are on the development/implementation of green nanotechnology, chemistry and sustainable processes applied to materials synthesis, remediation, recycling and chemical analysis. Projects converting biomass to carbon quantum dots for sensing and electronics; nanophotocatalytic oxidation of wastewater; and use of carbohydrates (biogenics) for nanomaterials preparation are ongoing as are development of microvolume, high-pressure continuous flow systems (HP-CFS) to prepare and analyze functional, sustainable nanomaterials. He recently developed the concept of a circular economy paradigm for implementing university science laboratories which led to an Award for Innovation in 2016 by the Campus Safety, Health & Environmental Management Association (CSHEMA). At the 21st Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference Dr. Wallen won the 2017 Applied Separations Prime Grant for commitment to teaching Supercritical Fluids. In his spare time he enjoys his family, playing music and outdoor activities.
