Research interests:

The main research area where I am involved is the development of magnetic bio-sensors, nanocalorimetric devices, and implementation of new materials with potential interest in the field of biosensors (carbon nanotubes and electroactive oxides and polymers). In this field I can apply mi experience in micro-nanofabrication techniques, materials characterization and the knowledge adquired during the last ten years, since I started my Phd, in magnetism and oxides and later on moving to biophysics during my first two posdoctoral positions. The last two years, I have implemented the tecniques to microfabricate electrodes for biosensors into polymeric materials. This biocompatibles materials are transparent, flexibles and make easier to implement low cost microfluidics, opening their aplicability to a wide range of fields such as biosensors for clinical diagnostics,for sensing of electroactive elements in fluids (like bacteries on water) or tracking cellular growth. In this frame nowadays I am the principal researcher of two proyects at the IMB-CNM-CSIC: i) One Spanish Plan nacional subprogram entitled CELLMICROCART-CEPCELLS in which we are developing a microfluidic device for sensing pH, Na+, K+ and TEER in monolayers of epithelial renal cells. This project has associated an FPI predoctoral fellow for the next years. ii) One INNPACTA entitled Nanocardiococo (Nanotecnología para Cardiología i Pneumococo) in which the objective is the diagnosis of cardivascular diseases (CVD) through the electrochemical sensing of the biomarkers
clinically relevants.

Education:

PhD in Physics, University of Sevilla (Spain).

Research interests:

To apply the tools provided by Statistical Mechanics (theory and molecular simulations) to problems of industrial relevance. We seek not only the fundamental understanding of what happens at the molecular level, but also a continuous improvement of models. The final goal is to develop accurate models able to quantitatively predict experimental data. The models are developed in close collaboration with experimental groups from several Universities and Research institutions or Companies.
 
In the last years we have focused on two main areas: 1) modeling, structural characterization and optimization of materials, including adsorbents, and catalytic materials, as well as dispersions of nanoparticles, and 2) quantitative predictions of thermodynamic, structural and transport properties of fluids of industrial relevance, including polymers, surfactants and alternative solvents (supercritical fluids, ionic liquids, etc), among others.
