I received the PhD degree in Photonic Technology from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain in 2006. In 2007 I joined the Optoelectronics Research Group of the University of Essex (UK) first as a Post-Doctoral Fellow and then as a Marie Curie Fellow (IEF Programme). In 2010 I was awarded by the European Commission with a second Marie Curie Fellowship (IOF Programme) to carry out a collaborative project between the University of Essex and the University of New Mexico (USA). Following this award in 2011 I started working in the Optoelectronics Research Group at the Center for High Technology Materials (CHTM-UNM) in Albuquerque, New Mexico (USA). In October 2013 I returned to the University of Essex (UK) to complete the Return Phase of my IOF Marie Curie Fellowship. In 2014 I was awarded a Chancellor Fellowship by the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland, UK). As a result of this award I started working from October 2014 as a Lecturer at the Strathclyde’s Institute of Photonics.
