At present I work in two fields: 1) Applications of nanoparticles to biomedical problems, and 2) Synthesis and physical study of metallic oxides to be used as catalytic materials. Before 2012 a worked for almost 37 years in semiconductor physics

I have published 131 refereed scientific papers. 

These have received 1576 external citations 05/2022. h=22.

I have directed the thesis of 49 students (16 BSC, 20 MSC, 13 PhD). I´m codirecting now two other PhD thesis.
