||Lluís Mañosa is Professor of Condensed Matter Physics at the Universitat de Barcelona. He is interested in the study of thermal, mechanical and magnetic properties of solids undergoing ferroic phase transitions. His current research focusses on materials exhibiting functional properties associated with these transitions, with a special attention paid to the interplay between different ferroic properties. Presently he is particularly centered in materials displaying giant caloric and multicaloric properties. Presently, he is the director of the Doctorate Progam in Physics at the Universitat de Barcelona.
