Diploma Thesis:

Thesis title: Theoretical and Experimental Study of Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells Based on Ionic Transition-Metal Complexes: From the Molecule to the Device Physical-Chemistry Department, Institute of Molecular Science, University of Valencia, Spain. Prof. Dr. E. Ortí and Dr. H. J. Bolink (2007-2010, PhD exam 20th of September 2010).

Field of Research:

His research encompasses three main lines, namely the development of sustainable third generation of electroluminescent materials for ionic-based lighting devices, the application of nanocarbon-based hybrids in solar cells and lighting devices, and the development of bio-inspired components for lighting, energy conversion, and diagnostic applications.
