Ikerbasque Research Fellow & Visiting Professor

Ikerbasque / University of the Basque Country

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 interactions 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.
