I received my PhD (2015) in Condensed Matter Physics & Nanotechnology from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and M.S./B.S. in Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid. I obtained a JAE pre-doctoral Fellowship from CSIC to study during my PhD how the reduction of dimensionality affects the transport properties of organic and inorganic thermoelectric materials. During this period of time, I carried out scientific stays at the Rensselaer Polytechnique Institute (New York, USA), the University of Bordeaux (France) and the University of California Berkeley (USA). In 2012, I participated in the 62nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Physics after qualifying in an international competition among young talent scientists. From 2016 to 2018, I became a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University, studying two dimensional (2D) materials and devices based on them for thermal, electrical, and thermoelectric applications. In 2018 I became a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at Twente University. My line of research focuses on thermal management, energy harvesting, nano- and micro-scale thermometry and thermal sensing.
- Thermometry from nanoscale resolution to cm-scale (Scanning Thermal Microscopy (SThM), 3ω-method, Infra-red, Raman thermometry, electro-thermal platforms, etc.)
- Development of micro- and nano-thermal devices for thermal management applications
- Heat flux and temperature sensors
- Fabrication and structural, thermal and electrical characterization of thermoelectric materials for energy harvesting applications
