Theory of Plasmonics and Mematerials
Welcome to my homepage!
Here you will find some details about my research interests and publications. I am currently based in Lisbon where I hold a research fellowship funded by FCT, the Portuguese national funding agency for science, research and technology.
A brief Bio
Between 2009 and 2013 I did my PhD at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. In 2014 I joined Imperial College London where I hold Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship between 2016 and 2018. In 2019, after a brief stay at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, I moved to Instituto de Telecomunicaçoes at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon.

My research focuses on the theory of the interaction between light and matter. My PhD was centered in the fields of Plasmonics and Metamaterials, with a particular focus on Quantum Plasmonics and Spoof Plasmons. At Imperial College I developed a line combining Transformation Optics and Graphene Plasmonics. At the same time, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship allowed me to start research on Topological Nanophotonics, which is one of my current focus. More recently, I have also been interested by space-time modulated metamaterials.
