I am a Ramón y Cajal researcher working at the University of Cádiz (Spain). My studies are mainly focused on the synthesis, growth mechanism, structural, physical (electric, electronic, optical) and chemical properties of nanomaterials based on layered structures in 1D and 2D geometries, as well as other nanostructures, in particular nanoparticles for plasmonic and catalytic interest. My main tools are based on STEM-HAADF imaging, electron spectroscopies and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, that I combine with DFT-based theoretical calculations and image simulations. In particular, I worked extensively on the synthesis, structural and optoelectronic characterization of transition metal dichalcogenide nanotubes and 2D-materials for photo and electrocatalytic applications.
