Pablo Loza-Alvarez, Dr.


Pablo Loza-Alvarez received his PhD in Laser Physics from the University of St Andrews, Scotland in 2000. He then performed 2 postdoctoral stays, one in St Andrews and one at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya under the Ramon y Cajal programme. In 2004 he was incorporated to ICFO as a Group Leader. In 2006 he entered in the I3 ANEP-MICINN programme. Currently he is the head of the Super Resolution Light Microscopy and Nanoscopy lab at ICFO. Dr. Loza-Alvarez has now a strong experience in microscopy and, by introducing novel photonics tools, has developed a number of novel imaging techniques. These have been used for a wide variety of applications ranging from the imaging of large model organisms (mesoscopic level) to the visualization of subcellular components (Super-Resolution). He has directed 6 PhD students, co-authored over 200 publications in international journals and conferences (h=23, Google Scholar), has written 6 patents and has been invited for seminars at different conferences, schools and colloquia (+10 invited talks/year).
