Chemistry BS at the University of Granada, Spain
Senior year of undergraduate at UCSB doing research in de Vries Group with the fellowship "Plan Propio- UGR"
Work in the industry as a chemist in N-Fuzed
Master in Chemistry B.S. in Physical-Inorganic Chemistry, with an end of master's thesis in synthesis and magnetic characterization of MOFs.
PhD in Physical Chemistry at UCSB
I would define myself as a nature-lover, outdoorsy, and outgoing person. Resident in Santa Barbara (CA, USA) and born in Granada (Spain), I love traveling and socializing with new people and cultures, which has allowed me to live happily on two different continents.
My work ethic is a combination of determination, engaging with others, and following my morals. I would like to to create an eco-friendly path in my career that aligns with my personality and beliefs.
During my PhD, my principal investigator is Professor Mattanjah de Vries (UCSB). In his group, I am working in two different projects:
1) Co-adviced by Professor Mike Gordon: Development of TELD, a technique that uses atomic force microscopy (AFM) to sample material at submicron resolution for off-line analysis by REMPI or other techniques.
2) Co-adviced by Professor Vojtěch Vlček: Using stochastic TD-DFT with range-separated hybrid functionals to obtain quantitative theoretical predictions of electronic excitations for optoelectronic devices.
