Personal profile

Personal Statement

I received the PhD degree in Photonic Technology from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain in December 2006. In 2007 I joined the Optoelectronics Research Group of the University of Essex (England, UK) first as a Post-Doctoral Fellow and then as a Marie Curie Fellow (IEF Programme, Project ISLAS, 2009-2011). In 2010 I was awarded by the European Commission with a second Marie Curie Fellowship (IOF Programme, Project NINFA, 2011-2014) to carry out a collaborative project between the Universities of New Mexico (USA) and Essex (UK). Following this award in 2011 I started working in the Optoelectronics Research Group at the Center for High Technology Materials (CHTM-UNM) in Albuquerque (NM, USA). 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 Strathclyde’s Institute of Photonics.

Research Interests

My research interests lie within Nanophotonics and Neuromorphic Photonics. In Nanophotonics, I work across topics that include nanowire photonics, nanolasers and hybrid nanophotonic fabrication. Within this activity we have recently delivered first reports on the transfer-printing of nanowire lasers for controllable nanophotonic device fabrication and on the integration of ultrasmall nanowire lasers.

Neuromorphic Photonics is an emerging scientific field looking at the emulation of the brain’s powerful computational capabilities with ultrafast photonic technologies for novel paradigms in ultrafast brain-inspired information processing. Within this activity I have delivered first reports on the controllable generation, inhibition and propagation of spiking dynamics in Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers at speeds up to 1 billion times faster than in biological neurons.
