Brief CV

I obtained my PhD in organic and supramolecular chemistry (supervisor Prof. Antoni Costa) at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) (2005-2010) with the outstanding doctoral award. Then I carried out two post-doctoral stays in international world-leading groups, the first with Prof. Takashi Kato (University of Tokyo, 2011-2015) working on liquid crystals, and the second with Prof. Frank Würthner (University of Würzburg, 2015-2016) working on self-assembled functional dyes. In 2016, I started my independent research as Junior Group Leader at the Center for Nanosystems Chemistry (University of Würzburg). In September 2017, I was appointed first Prof. Ayudante Doctor and then Prof. Contratado Doctor (2018) at the UIB where I started my teaching activity and continued my research in the Group of Supramolecular Chemistry. In February 2019 I started a new contract Ramón y Cajal from the 'Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades' at the UIB.
As a result of my research activity, I have published 4 patents and 35 papers in international peer-reviewed journals. Among my publications I would like to highlight three JACS (2013, 2014 and 2015), two Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. (2017), one nature commun., one Small (2021) four Chem. Sci. (2016-2021), one Adv. Sci. (2017), two Chem. Mater. (2014 and 2016) and a review paper in Nature Rev. Mater.(2017). 28 of my publications are published in journals of the first quartile (Q1) and 22 in journals of the first decile (D1). Overall, my papers have been cited more than 1300 times (1200 from 2016) and my H-index is 19. Moreover, I peer-review manuscripts for the American Chemical Society and Royal Society of Chemistry. I have attended around 30 conferences, where I gave 7 oral presentations and also 7 invited talks.
My main research lines focus on the development of functional self-assembled systems (liquid crystals and supramolecular polymers) via molecular approach. This consists of designing organic compounds with the molecularly encoded information to direct the self- assembly into well-defined nanostructures that in turn can feature specific functions and respond to external stimuli. My main expertise is in the fields of: i) organic chemistry, ii) supramolecular chemistry (host-guest, supramolecular polymers), iii) liquid crystals, and iv) functional materials.
