Research Associate Physics

Biography

Personal Statement

I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in 2009 and 2010, respectively, both in Electronic Engineering and from the University of Barcelona. In 2013, I was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Engineering and Advanced Technologies, also from the University of Barcelona, for my work in the design, implementation and characterization of Geiger-mode avalanche photodiodes in standard CMOS technologies. The devices were aimed at the future linear colliders International Linear Collider and Compact LInear Collider. In 2014, I joined the Department of Physics at the University of Liverpool as a research associate. At the University of Liverpool, I am developing HV-CMOS pixel sensors for the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider upgrade and other future particle physics experiments.

My research activities are focused on the fields of ASIC design and semiconductor detectors. My main interests include low-noise radiation detectors and radiation tolerant electronics aimed at particle trackers and imaging applications.
