I am Ikerbasque Research Fellow and Visiting Professor at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in Spain. My main research interests are focused on the science and applications of intense light-matter interaction in confined geometries, in particular in micro- and nano-structured optical fibres.
Outside the scientific world, I am a passionate traveler, musician, sportsman and reader. Partner of a wonderful person and proud father of a wonderful little girl.
PhD in Physics, 2011

MsC in Photonics and Laser Technologies, 2008
Universities of Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña and Vigo (Spain)
BSc in Physics, 2006

We work on the conception, design and development of novel fibre-based laser sources operating in spectral domains such as the ultraviolet or the mid-infrared, traditionally inaccessible in standard fibre optics
The inherent multimode nature of anti-resonant hollow-core fibres opens new routes to efficient frequency conversion and spatial structuring of the outcoupled radiation, even in the single-photon limit
Modern machine learning approaches such as deep learning using artificial neural networks enable the optimization of nonlinear optical processes and allow for the discovery of nonintuitive photonic designs with unique optical properties
We are always seeking for motivated MsC and PhD students, as well as outstanding postdoctoral researchers. There are many funding schemes available at the regional, national and european level. Should you like to know more, just ask!
