I obtained my PhD at the Materials Physics Department of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2012 in the group of Prof. J. M. Rojo.  My PhD work was devoted to the study of the activation of new catalytic paths caused by the creation of controlled surface defects. To carry out those studies, I designed and built up an ultra-high vacuum (UHV) system combining an Infrared Spectrometer with other surface-analysis and preparation techniques. I did a short postdoc at the ICMM (CSIC) where I mounted another UHV combined STM-Infrared system and started my studies of on-surface chemistry. Then I moved to Synchrotron SOLEIL in Paris, where I focused my research in the study of graphene by means of scanning probe microscopy and photoemission techniques. From 2014 I rejoined the ICMM within the Graphene Flagship Project to continue a more extended research in the field of graphene and other 2D materials from the surface science point of view to the direct technological applications such as biosensors. To accomplish my goals I have acquired a broad knowledge of diverse surface characterization techniques including spectroscopies and microscopies, being X-Ray Spectroscopy (XPS) and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) my main working tools
