R. Cid has a Bachelor´s degree in Physics from the University of Granada and a PhD. in Physics from the University of Oviedo. Her experience in research and instrumentation is related to particle physics as well as condensed matter physics and Xray-matter interactions. Up to now, her research interests in material science have focused on the magnetic properties of intermetallic thin films, multilayers and nanostructures with interesting and tunable perpendicular magnetic anisotropy and epitaxial oxide heterostructures with promising properties for implementation in all-oxide spintronic devices. In addition to research, she has experience in education and science outreach.

Her first steps in research approached to particle physics until she got the Advanced Studies Diploma with a research work entitled "Direct and indirect detection of dark matter particles with liquid argon detectors" (University of Granada). Afterwards, she joined the group of Thin films and magnetic nanostructures at the University of Oviedo under the direction of Prof. J.M. Alameda, where she studied the origin of the perpendicular magnetic anisotropy of amorphous intermetallic rare-earth/transition-metal alloys and multilayers grown by magnetron sputtering by conventional macroscopic (VSM, AGM, MOKE) and synchrotron-based microscopic (EXAFS, XMCD) techniques.

After completing her PhD. she worked at the ESRF (European Synchrotron in Grenoble, France) as post-doctoral researcher in the Spanish CRG BM25-SpLine, headed by Prof. G.R. Castro, where she was responsible of the surfaces and interfaces X-ray diffraction stations of the beamline and their sample environments, as well as the magneto-optical Kerr effect station of the in-house laboratory. Her research was devoted to the structural study of epitaxial oxide heterostructures grown by PLD and the correlation between structure and physical properties to explore their technological potential for spintronics.

She has also performed different research visits to national and international research institutions: she visited the CERN (European particle physics laboratory) several times inside the ICARUS international experimental collaboration framework, the Low temperatures and Superconductivity group of Universidad Complutense de Madrid leaded by Prof. J.L. Vicent and the Soft X-ray Absorption and Magnetic Scattering Group at the ESRF headed by Prof. Nick Brookes.

Since January 2019 she became a member of CIC energiGUNE as post-doctoral researcher ascribed to the Surface Analysis Unit and the Advanced Interfaces Analysis research group.
