Soraya Sangiao obtained her BSc. Degree in Physics in 2007 in the University of Zaragoza, obtaining the awards for the most outstanding graduate in Physics, the most outstanding graduate in Science of the University of Zaragoza in 2007 and the award for the third most outstanding graduate in Physics in Spain in 2007. Immediately she joined Prof. Ibarra's group at the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragón (INA), granted by a pre-doc F.P.U. Fellowship, to carry out a PhD project under the supervision of Prof. José María De Teresa and Prof. Luis Morellón at the Department of Condensed Matter Physics. This PhD project, which was completed in January 2012, was focused on the study of electronic transport properties of low-dimensional nanostructures made of bismuth and ferromagnetic metals and the magnetization dynamics properties of different ferromagnetic nanostructures, leading to the publication of 8 research papers in top-rated peer-reviewed journals.

In June 2012, Dr. Soraya Sangiao moved to the Condensed Matter Physics laboratory of Saclay Institute for Radiation and Matter (IRAMIS), a part of the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in Saclay (France), as a postdoctoral researcher founded by a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship to work with Dr. Michel Viret on a project called "AtomicFMR" based on the electrical detection of ferromagnetic resonance in nanostructures and atomic contacts. During this postdoctoral stay, she learnt a unique technique that combines electrical detection of ferromagnetic resonance with the controlled breaking of the nanostructures by the mechanically controllable break junction technique to stabilize atomic contacts, being able to study the dynamical magnetic properties of several systems, in particular, individual domain walls in ferromagnetic nanostructures and the ac and dc spin transport between two ferromagnetic nanostructures in the diffusive, ballistic and atomic regimes. This postdoctoral stay led to the publication of 3 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

In July 2014, Dr. Soraya Sangiao joined the ARAID Foundation, a foundation created by the Government of Aragón for research and development, as a non-permanent full-time researcher to develop a project at the INA based on the study of the electronic transport properties of new nanodevices based on bismuth and superconducting or ferromagnetic nanodeposits. From August 2015, Dr. Sangiao stays at INA as a Research associate of the Advanced Microscopy Laboratory, working on the study of spintronic and spin-caloritronic properties of different materials for interest in applications. She is the responsible of a new research line, she has designed, built and tested a new setup for spin pumping experiments at high frequency (20 GHz), establishing a new research line focused on the interplay between magnetic properties at high frequency, spintronic and thermoelectric transport in nanostructures. During these years, she has published 10 papers, 1 review and 1 book chapter and she has given 5 invited conferences.

In September 2017, Dr. Sangiao joined the Condensed Physics Department of the University of zaragoza as a Phd. Assistant Professor, belonging to the School of Engineering and Architecture. From this date, besides her research activity, she also teaches Bachelor's and Master's Degree students. During these years as a Phd. Assistant Professor, she has published 6 papers.
