I performed my PhD (2011) at the Institute of Polymer Science and Technology (ICTP-CSIC, Madrid, Spain) on polymer-carbon nanotubes nanocomposites, with special emphasis on the development of vibrational microspectroscopic methods for the study of such materials. From 2012 to 2014 I was contracted as postdoctoral researcher at the P03 MiNaXS beamline of the PETRA III storage ring in DESY (Hamburg, Germany). During this period I was mainly involved in beamline development (e.g., new hard X-ray focusing strategies, new sample environments) as well as on different projects related to the use of Grazing Incidence X-ray Scattering (GIWAXS, GISAXS and GIUSAXS) as an in-situ time-resolved tool for studying kinetic phenomena in thin films (e.g., growth of metallic thin films for plasmonic applications, morphological changes in polymer solar cells during operation, or drying kinetics of colloidal thin films).
Since 2015, I am contracted as postdoctoral researcher within the ERC-Synergy NANOCOSMOS project in which we are building the STARDUST machine, a unique Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) machine to unveil plausible mechanisms of interstellar dust formation in dying stars.
I am also member of the board of the Spanish Synchrotron Users Association (AUSE) as well as national delegate of the European Synchrotron and Free Electron Lasers Users Organization (ESUO).
