Jose did his bacherlor’s degree in Chemistry at the University of Cordoba (Spain) and completed a Master’s degree in Fine Chemistry, specializing in Physical Chemistry at the same University (2007-2013). During this period he worked in the Department of Physical Chemistry and Applied Thermodynamics where he studied the UV-radiation effects on viologen derivatives in Langmuir-Blodgett monolayers. In 2015 he obtains an R + D + i grant from the Junta de Andalucía and he carries out in the Andalusian Innovation Center for Sustainable Construction where he researches on layered double hydroxides (LDHs) and flame retardant polymers. Due to his passion for teaching, he completed the Master’s degree Teacher Training at the University of Granada (2016).
From 2017 to present, Jose works in the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) where he is doing his PhD on high porosity metal oxides synthesized by remote plasma techniques, for their application as perovskite photovoltaic cells, thermochromic and ferromagnetic materials. During his phD, he is doing a short stay with Ana Sobrido’s group to employ these materials as supercapacitors.
