Jose A. Garrido is an ICREA research professor and leader of the ICN2 Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group, which explores novel electronic materials, such as graphene and other 2D materials, and their potential in electronic and bioelectronic applications.

He received his master’s and PhD degrees in Telecommunication Engineering from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in 1996 and 2000, respectively. From 2001 to 2004 he worked as a postdoc at the Walter Schottky Institute, Technische Universität München (Germany), before becoming the leader of its Functional Carbon Materials Group. He attained his habilitation in experimental physics at this university in 2010 and from 2011 to 2015 held a lecturer (privatdozent) position at its department of physics.

In 2015 Prof. Garrido joined the ICN2 where, in addition to his role as group leader, he is vice-director and head of the Strategy Development Office. He is also co-leader of the Biomedical Technologies work package of the European Graphene Flagship initiative and coordinator of the EU FET-Proactive project BrainCom.
