He completed the degree in Chemistry from University of Zaragoza (2008)His PhD in Chemistry was directed by Dr. Edgar Muñoz (2013, Instituto de Carboquímica-CSIC & University of Zaragoza). The thesis was focused on the synthesis of nanomaterials by laser ablation and the heterogeneous catalysis with gold/carbon nanomaterials. Then, he joined the group of Prof. Valeria Nicolosi at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), where he worked as Research Fellow for more than four years, developing novel nanomaterials for energy storage applications. Upon his return to Spain in 2018, he undertook a position as Chief Technology Officer at a spin-off company for one year before joining the BionNanoSurf group, headed by Prof. Jesús Martínez de la Fuente at the Aragón Nanoscience and Materials Institute (INMA-CSIC/UNIZAR). He currently holds a Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship (MSCA-IF), funded by the European Commission (H2020). His research interests lie in the design of antimicrobials using novel hybrid nanomaterials for application in the field of heritage conservation.
