Prof. Marisol Martín-González

Main Researcher – Group Leader

Prof. Marisol Martín-Gonzalez received her PhD in 2000 from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, followed up by a postdoctoral stay of three years at the University of California at Berkeley, where she worked on nanostructuring materials for thermoelectrics applications. She later returned to Spain and is currently a Research Professor at the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology (IMN-CNM) of the CSIC (Spanish Research Council), where she leads the FINDER (Functional Nanoscale Devices for Energy) research group.

Prof. Martín-González is nowadays the Scientific Coordinator of the Materia Area of the CSIC, co-founder of the spin-off AD + Particles (, member of the advisory board and co-founder of the European Thermoelectric Society, and corresponding academic of the RAC (Royal Academy of Sciences). In the past, she also has been vice-director of the IMN-CNM and director of the Sensors and Biosensors Department at the IMN-CNM.

Her research is focused on designing and developing devices from nanostructured materials that enable more efficient harvesting and management of heat to produce clean energy. Backed up by her pioneering work in this field, she received an ERC Consolidator in 2010, followed by a complementary ERC PoC to explore the commercialization and applicability of three-dimensional alumina matrices as a metamaterial with novel optical, magnetic, thermoelectric, and energy properties. More recently, in 2022, she obtained her current ERC-Advanced Grant (2,5 million €) aimed at generating electricity from the body’s heat to power wearable devices.
