He is integrated in the unit of research of Optoelectronic Materials and Devices (UMDO) and is responsible for the Lowdim research line at the Materials Science Institute (ICMUV) of the University of Valencia, Spain. He received the B.S., and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Valencia in 1992 and 1998, respectively. During his PhD, he performed two research stays at the Hahn-Meitner Institute of Berlin (Germany). After a postdoctoral stay (1999-2001) at the French-Spanish beamline at the LURE Synchrotron (France), he set up a research line devoted to the electronic characterization of materials by photoemission (UPS and XPS) at the Valencia University. In 2002, he becameAssociate Professor in the Department of Applied Physics and Electromagnetism, University of Valencia. During this period, he has also performed several research stays at SOLEIL Synchrotron (France), at University of California Berkeley (USA), and at Heriot-Watt University (UK). Currently, he is Full Professor in the Department of Applied Physics and Electromagnetism, University of Valencia. His current research interests include two-dimensional materials (layered semiconductors, topological insulators, and graphene), electronic and optoelectronic characterization of low-dimensional materials and related devices. Since September 2023, he is Director of the Department of Applied Physics and Electromagnetism.
