Errea Lope, Ion


Ion Errea (Donostia/San Sebastián, 1984) holds a degree (2007) and PhD (2011) in Physics from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). He was a post-doctoral researcher at the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris and the Donostia International Physics Centre (DIPC). He was shortlisted for the 2015 Volker Heine Young Investigator Award and was selected Emerging Leader by the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.

Since 2018, he has led the research group on Quantum Theory of Materials at the Centre for Material Physics (CSIC-UPV/EHU) and, since 2015, has been a non-tenured professor in the Department of Applied Physics 1 (UPV/EHU) as well as associate researcher at the DIPC.

His research focusses on the development of theoretical methods of calculating complex properties of solids: quantum and anharmonic effects in atomic vibrations, electron-phonon interaction, and the application of these methods in hydrogen-based superconductors, themoelectric materials, phase transitions in solids and nanostructures, etc.

Ion Errea leads the ERC-funded Starting Grant project titled Discovery and Characterization of Hydrogen-Based High-Temperature Superconductors. He also takes part in other research projects funded by other agencies (Spanish Government, PRACE, etc.).

His research has been published in prestigious scientific journals including Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, Nano Letters and Physical Review Letters. He has also been a guest speaker at dozens of international conferences.

In terms of his dissemination work, he is a regular collaborator on various Radio Euskadi programmes and writes for the Mapping Ignorance blog.

Ion Errea is a young correspondent member of JAKIUNDE since 8 November 2019.
