BackgroundI received a degree in Industrial Electronics and Automation Engineering from Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena (Spain) in 2009. There, I became curious about research and started to participate in a European funded project to develop anthropomorphic robots. Later, I joined the Laboratory for Electrochemistry and Intelligent Materials from the Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, where I pursued my Ph.D. in the field of biomimetic electrochemical materials and actuators within the program “Electrochemistry. Science and Technology”.
The dissertation, defended in 2015, was awarded with the ‘best Ph.D. dissertation of the university’ award and the ‘Antonio Aldaz’ award to the best PhD dissertation given by the Electrochemistry group from the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry. After that I continued working at Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena, developing new projects until 2017 when I moved to Linköping University, first as postdoctoral fellow, then postdoc, principal research engineer and now that I became research fellow.
During all these years I have learnt and explored concepts and ideas from many different fields such as electronics, robotics, materials science or electrochemistry which has given me a multidisciplinary background.
