He received his MSc in physics from the University of Valencia (Spain). From 2002 to 2005, he worked in the Soft-Matter Group at the Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz (Germany) on the fabrication of 3-D colloidal crystals. In 2005-2006 he completed a PG Cert on photonics. In 2011, he completed his PhD in the Optoelectronic Materials and Devices Group (Materials Institute, Uni. Valencia). He has worked on the development of new metallic nanocomposite materials with lithographic properties, and active and passive photonic crystal-based devices, focusing mainly on nanofabrication processes. In 2011, he joined Heriot-Watt University as research associate to apply photon-managing technologies based on nanophotonic concepts for third-generation solar cells. In 2015 he commenced a position as research fellow on the use of metallic nanocomposite materials in additive manufacturing. He has published over 40 journals and conferences papers, 2 book chapters and holds an international patent on nanofabrication. He has more than 50 participations in conferences and scientific events, including symposium and conference organisation and several invited oral presentations. Since Feb 2017 he has been a lecturer at Heriot-Watt University and his research focuses on the use of functional materials for optoelectronic devices, sensors and additive manufacturing.
