Leopoldo L. Martín Rodríguez – Researcher in experimental optics and photonics.
Degree in physics in 2009 from La Laguna University (Spain) and PhD in 2013 from the same university. The thesis entitled: “Optical microresonators made out of rare earth doped glasses for optical applications” obtained the “Extraordinary PhD award” from La Laguna. Visiting PhD student at Universitat de Barcelona (2011) and University of Michigan (2012 and 2013). Teaching experience at la Laguna in undergrad school (2012 and 2013).
Since 2013 he has held a position as Postdoctoral Fellow at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Prof. Tal Carmon´s Optomechanics Lab. Conducting research in solid state and liquid optical micro resonators.
