Dr. Antoni Planes is a Professor of Physics in the Department d’Estructura i Constituents de la Matèria at the Universitat de Barcelona, Catalonia, where he leads a group in phase transitions. His recent research has focused on the study of phase transitions in systems with interplay between structure and magnetism, such as magnetic shape-memory and magnetocaloric materials. He is also active in the study of the influence of disorder in phase transitions, with the aim of understanding precursor phenomena and avalanche criticality in externally driven systems.
