      Miryam Arredondo joined the Centre for Nanostructured Media as a lecturer in 2012. She received her primary degree from the Instituto Tecnologico Superior de Irapuato (Mexico) and obtained her PhD from the University of New South Wales (Australia) in 2011 at Prof. Valanoor’s group. In 2010, she joined the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics for one year for a postdoctoral fellowship in a European project in functional oxides (IFOX).

      Her research has focused in exploring ferroelectrics and other functional oxides via transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. Her thesis centred in interface effects of ferroelectric thin films, including structural defects and diffusion. She has ample experience in TEM and her current interests are focused in dynamic studies of functional materials, with special interest on ferroics.

      She is a member of the Institute of Physics, Juno IOP Champion and member of the SWAN self-assessment team of the school.
