Javier Sanchez-Benitez serves as a “Ramon y Cajal” Postdoctoral Researcher at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain). His area of expertise is solid-state chemistry and materials science, and his primary research interests are functional properties of new transition-metal oxide materials. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid/Spanish National Research Council (Spain); specialized in synthesis of new transition metal oxides under high pressures, and he has acquired experience in structural and magnetic characterization by X-ray and neutron diffraction. During his three years postdoctoral stay at the Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions (University of Edinburgh, UK), he worked on the effect of high pressure on single molecule magnets: studying different properties (transport, magnetism) under high pressure, becoming specialist in this topic.
