I obtained my degree in Physics at the University of Granada (Spain) and completed my PhD at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Ioannina (Greece). I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork (Ireland) and I am currently employed at the Institute for Advanced Study at Shenzhen University (China).
My research is focused on the computational modelling of materials by Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. We use computer simulations to study the structural and electronic properties of metals and metal-oxides' surfaces and interfaces; aiming to understand the fundamental interactions between these materials and simple molecules. The main outcomes of our work are key for the rational design of novel materials that can be used in a wide range of applications such as catalysis, energy storage, biomedical implants, antifouling coatings or heavy metal adsorbent biomaterials.
