I obtained my Ph.D. in physics in 2008 from the Institute of Materials Science of Seville ICMS-CSIC. That same year, I was honored with a Beckman postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (USA), which allowed me to collaborate with both prof. Paul A. Braun and John A. Rogers developing novel unconventional techniques to fabricate photonic architectures compatible with current mass production processes. In 2011, I moved to ICFO with an ICFONEST postdoctoral fellowship (Marie Curie COFUND action), where I joined the group of Prof. Konstantatos to learn about solar cells based in colloidal quantum dots. In March 2014, I obtained the Martí Franqués Fellowship offered by the University Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona. Under the scope of this fellowship, I acted as principal investigator, managing students and applying for funding for my own research. In 2015, I moved to the the institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) with a Ramon y Cajal Fellowship and an ERC Starting Grant and became a tenured researcher in 2018.
At ICMAB my research group is looking at designing and fabricating large area and low cost photonic architectures that can be implemented in emerging optoelectronic devices to improve their performance.
My research relies in unconventional nanofabrication to produce photonic architectures with exciting optical properties easily incorporated into large area devices. We have the capabilities to design photonic nanostructures for each device type using current numerical simulation tools. We combine soft nanolithography, transfer printing and industry compatible fabrication approaches to integrate the architectures as part of the optoelectronic devices. Finally, we characterize optically and electrically the enhanced prototypes employing state of the art spectroscopic equipment.
