My research is focused in understanding and controlling the properties of nanoscale systems at an atomic level. I received my PhD from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) in 2005 (director: JM Gómez-Rodríguez). From 2006 to December 2008. I was Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow and Group Leader in the group of Prof. K. Kern at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research. During 2009/2013 I was a Ramón y Cajal researcher at the UAM. Since 2014, I am a permanent professor in the Department of Physics of Condensed Matter at the UAM, directing the Atom by Atom research group. At present, I am particularly interested in exploring and manipulating graphene physics with atomic precision. Using STM as main experimental technique, I investigate the possibility of selectively incorporating to specific regions of the graphene layers, electronic band gaps, magnetism and superconductivity.
