Short CV/Education and training

  • I received my PhD Thesis in 2008 from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) in the Molecular Nanoscience and Molecular Materials (NANOMOL) department. After, I was awarded with a IEF Marie Curie Fellowship for a post-doctoral stay to the University of Strasbourg (France) at the Institute de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS) in the group of Prof. Paolo Samorì.

  • Since April 2017 I am “Científico Titular” at ICMAB-CSIC. I have participated in several national and international projects. It is worth to highlight that in 2014 we were awarded with a FET OPEN project for young Researchers project which I coordinated. I am co-author of 52 publications with an h-index of 20).

  • During my research career I have performed eight stays in renowned national and international laboratories highlighting National University of Singapore (Graphene Center, 2014) and University of Twente (MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, 2005).
