PhD in Chemistry (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Germany)) for his thesis on the synthesis of conductive polymers of electricity for electron beam lithography, which was carried out at Infineon Technologies AG (former company of the SIEMENS group). He then joined the UMDO group at the Materials Science Institute of the University of Valencia as a postdoc where he launched a new line of research in the field of chemical synthesis of new nanomaterials for optoelectronics, photovoltaics and sensors. At the end of 2009 he co-founded Intenanomat S.L. spin-off company of the University of Valencia, where he was the R&D manager for 7 years. Intenanomat is aimed at R&D of nanomaterials for applications in biotechnology, sensors, optoelectronics, catalysis and renewable energy. In 2017 he joined the University of Valencia again with a Ramón y Cajal fellowship and launched a new line of research in the field of synthesis and formulation of nanomaterials of nanomaterials for optoelectronics, thermoelectrics, photo and electrocatalysis and sensors.

His main line of research focuses on the synthesis and deposition of new multifunctional nanomaterials for optoelectronics, energy convertion, sensing and catalysis using different deposition and printing techniques. In particular, he has a great interest in the synthesis of metal nanoparticles (Au, Ag, Pt), semiconducting nanocrystals (Lead halide Perovskites, Quantum Dots), Metal Oxides (TiO2, ZnO, NiOx, CoOx, SnOx, InOx...) and conducting polymers and their nanocomposites. Due to the combination of these properties, nanocomposites are the ideal candidates for the low cost manufacturing of the next generation of micro and high performance nanodevices in solid state.

Currently, he has published more than 70 peer-review papers, 12 patents, over 60 contributions to the conference, and has received more than 1300 citations, an H = 21 and in Nanoscience / Nanotechnology and Physics- Chemistry (Source: Google Scholar). He is currently supervising 3 Theses, 5 master's theses, 8 bachelor's theses and has supervised 1 PhD thesis.
