Speaker's Details
Prof. Luis Miguel Varela
University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Dr Varela obtained his PhD thesis in Physics (USC) in 2000 (Title: Theoretical study of the equilibrium and transport in charged complex fluids in the mean_field approximation", with honors (Extraordinary Prize 2001). From 2000 to 2003 he was an Assistant professor (profesor asociado) in the USC Department of Condensed Matter Physics. Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Then as Associate professor (profesor titular) from 2003 where he obtained an Habilitation for full*professor in 2014.

He got different Scientific and Academic Management positions:

a) Dean of the Faculty of Physics (USC, since May 2010).

b) Head of the Master Program in Renewable Energies and Sustainability (USC, since 2011).

c) Head of the PhD Program in Renewable Energies and Sustainability (USC, since 2011).

d) Head of the Master Program in Physics (USC, since 2013).

e) Scientific representative of Spain in the Management Committee of the COST Action IS1104 “The EU in the new complex geography of economic systems: models, tools and

policy evaluation“. Scientific  representative of the Grant Holder of the Action.

f) Chair of the 2nd Iberian Meeting on Ionic Liquids (July 20-22, 2011)

He runs more than 15 Research projects and research contracts including several fields of soft matter, ionic liquids and complex systems. Current research project in properties of ionic liquids and their mixtures with cosolvents and inorganic salts of electrochemical interest for energy applications. Active research in the simulation of ionic liquids in the neighbourhood of walls (electrochemical devices).
