During my research career I have had the opportunity to work with different materials and learn techniques in several international and multidisciplinary laboratories. I began my research training as undergraduate in 2006 by a short fellowship at the Physics-Chemistry Rocasolano Institute (CSIC, Spain) and a national collaboration research fellowship at the Chemistry-Physics Department (University of Salamanca, Spain). After obtaining my degree in Chemical Engineering in February 2008, I defended my minor thesis with honors degree in September 2008. Then, I started my PhD at the Chemistry-Physics Department (University of Salamanca, Spain) being awarded with a European Social Fund-Regional PhD fellowship (and national Master travel grant). During the PhD stage, I began to synthesize and characterize different nanomaterials: quantum dots and graphene related materials; and started working on UV-vis photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy by a research stay fellowship at the Molecular Photochemistry Group (Instituto Superior Técnico, Portugal). After finishing my PhD and an additional Master in Innovation, I moved as postdoctoral researcher to Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Genova, Italy) inside the Graphene Flagship project for almost 6 years (2014-2020), working at NanoChemistry Department and Graphene Labs. There, I worked on tailor-made nanomaterials and 2D materials synthesis/preparation, specialized in steady-state and dynamic UV-vis-NIR PL and Raman spectroscopy and was fully dedicated to the design, fabrication, and characterization of optical and electronic devices (solar cells, photodetectors and memories). After this period, I moved to CIC nanoGUNE as independent Gipuzkoa researcher fellow with the project Modelfoto2D, which aims to modulate the PL properties of 2D materials by physicochemical strategies; and I am currently co-leading a Spanish national funded project Molding2D, which targets the molecular control of magnetic properties in 2D materials. These projects comprise my mid-to-long term scientific interests focused on the design and development of innovative 2D materials for optoelectronic and spintronic devices, namely involving metal-halide perovskites and transition metal chalcogenides. Additionally, I keep an active collaborative relationship with IIT as Affiliated Researcher at the NanoChemistry Department (Prof. L. Manna), with several projects ongoing.
