Personal profile

Research interests

I develop novel concepts in photovoltaics related with the application of nanophotonics and quantum nano-structures in solar cells, with the main aim of increasing their efficiency and with the additional potential of: lowering their cost and weight, improving their mechanical flexibility and long-term stability.
