Javier S. Blazquez has been an Associate Professor at the Department of Physics of Condensed Matter, University of Seville, Seville, Spain, since January 2010. He is a Member in the Noncrystalline Solids Group. He completed his Physics degree studies at the University of Seville in 1998 and finished his Ph.D. degree thesis on microstructure and magnetic properties of nanocrystalline soft magnetic alloys in 2002 at the University of Seville. In 2003, he was awarded the Extraordinary Award on his doctorate thesis. In 2003, he obtained a contract as a Young Researcher at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw, Poland, and, afterwards, a contract at the KFKI-CMRC, Hungarian Academy of Science. In 2004, he got a postdoctoral contract supported by the Regional Government Junta de Andalucia to be developed at Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden. From 2005 to 2010, he got a postdoctoral contract with Junta de Andalucia for his reincorporation to the Department of Physics of Condensed Matter at the University of Seville. In January 2010, he obtained an Associate Professor position at the University of Seville. During this period, he was awarded the Young Scientist Award on Experimental Physics from the Spanish Royal Society of Physics in 2008 and the Young Scientist Award from the Royal Academy of Science of Seville and Real Maestranza de Caballeria of Seville. His research interests are amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys, mechanical alloying, rapid quenching, soft magnetic metaestable alloys, kinetics of crystallization, and the relationship between microstructure-magnetic properties.
