I am a Research Scholar at Stanford University and a SunCat Research Fellow at SLAC National Laboratory. Previously I was at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University. I was awarded the prestigious Harvard SEAS fellowship to perform independent research in computational material science in advanced compounds and photovoltaic applications. In my research, I design and perform large-scale parallel simulations that enable the investigation of research problems in areas ranging from energy materials, organic electronics, and strong correlated system to nano-layered structures and novel functional compounds. During the past few years I had been focus on the study of the electronic and magnetic properties of carbon nanostructures. A number of systems and allotropes were investigated and one of the main goals was to investigated the effect of doping and defects on the carbon properties. Nowadays, the focus of my research is a nanoscale model coupling the ab initio description of electronic and structural properties of advanced materials with novel forms to predict and analysis new behaviors. Such as, photocatalysis, hybrid heterostructures, ultrafast chemical process, and chiseling effects. In my graduate school, I stayed 5 years in Europe working in two different countries, Denmark and Spain. I completed my Master in Nanoscience with honor (summa cum laude) at the Donostia International Physics Center (DiPc) and my Ph.D. at the European program (summa cum laude), European Ph.D, between Danish Technical University (DTU, Denmark) and DiPC (Spain). I received The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) Fellowship and The International CSIC Grant Fellowship.
