I am an Associate Professor in the group of Self-Assembled Materials and Self Organized Complexity, from the Section of Physical Chemistry in the Department of Materials Science and Physical Chemistry, at the University of Barcelona. I am also a member of the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the University of Barcelona.
My current research activities involve experiments on soft condensed matter systems, such as active protein suspensions (active soft matter), surfactant and colloidal Langmuir-Blodgett films, driven colloidal suspensions, and liquid crystals.

You can find more information and presentations in the research  section of the web page. References to my papers are available in the publications section.

Background

My research background is in the study of structures and dynamical properties of soft systems. I earned a PhD in Physics from the University of Pittsburgh, where I pursued studies in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, with research on pattern formation in complex fluids

Later on, I was a postdoctoral member in the Laboratoire de Physique from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, conducting research in the formation and dynamics of structures in liquid crystals, in the Soft Matter grup, with Patrick Oswald.

In a second postdoc, I  was a member of the
Department of Chemisty in Tulane University  in the Surface Chemistry group, with Dan Schwartz (now at U.C. Boulder). My research involved the study of microrheology of Langmuir Monolayers.
