I am currently a Research Fellow deeply immersed in the intricacies of photonics and its applications for new and impactful technologies. I started my research path while interning at INL, working on the nanofabrication of moth-eye antireflective nanostructures through nanoimprint lithography. This experience was followed by a second internship at CENIMAT|i3N, where I later had the opportunity of being integrated as a Research Fellow. Currently, my research is focused on the study of photonic and plasmonic nanostructures for photovoltaics, from both an experimental and modelling point of view. My modelling work aims to better understand the opto-electrical behavior of plasmonic silver nanomeshes. Meanwhile, inside the clean room I experiment with different nanofabrication methodologies that can develop these nanostructured architectures.
