EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future



Miguel Anaya is a Research Fellow at Darwin College and a Marie Curie Fellow in the Cavendish Laboratory. Dr Anaya graduated from the Autonomous University of Madrid with a B.S.+M.S. in Physics (2012) and obtained a second M.S. in Materials Science at the University of Seville (2013). He completed his PhD at the Spanish National Research Council in 2018, with recognition from the Spanish Royal Society of Physics as the Best Thesis in Experimental Physics.


Dr Anaya works on the modelling, fabrication and characterisation of emerging semiconductors for optoelectronic devices, covering from photovoltaic devices and photonic engineered LEDs to sensor devices. His approach is highly multidisciplinary and includes applications as diverse as low dose, high-resolution X-ray devices for early cancer detection (relevant to SDG 3: Good health and well-being), angular selective light sources and next-generation tandem solar cells (relevant to SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy).
