Short CV
Dr. Eva MONROY received her Master (1996) and Doctorate (2000) in Telecommunication Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Spain), where her main research topic was the design, fabrication and characterization of photodetectors based on III-nitrides. From 1999 to 2001 she worked as assistant professor at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. Her research focused on the technological development of opto- and micro-electronic devices based on III-nitrides: photodetectors, field effect transistors, light emitting devices and surface acoustic wave filters. Since 2001, she is a senior researcher at the Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (IRIG) of CEA, where she is responsible for the molecular beam epitaxy cluster for growth of III-nitrides and oxides. Her main research topic is the synthesis of nanostructures and heterostructures, an​d their incorporation in novel devices for opto- and microelectronics. In 2004, she was Invited Professor during the spring semester at the University of Göttingen (Germany), and in 2005 she obtained her Habilitation as research supervisor (HDR) from the University of Grenoble. Since 2022, she is deputy director of PHELIQS. She is author or co-author of more than 300 publications in international journals.
