TEACHING


MECHANICS


Third semester of Industrial and Organisational Engineering


LINES OF RESEARCH


My research activity revolves around the application of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance techniques (Contiuous Wave EPR, Pulse EPR, Electron-Nuclear Double Resonance (ENDOR) and Electron-Electron (DEER)) to study systems with technological, chemical, and especially biological interest.

Currently my lines of research are concentrated in three areas:



  • Study of the active site of metaloproteins through the determination of hyperfine interactions between the electronic spin and the surrounding magnetic nuclei, which gives information about the structure as well as the distribution of the spin.

  • Obtaining conformational information by means of determining the distances between paramagnetic probes by measuring the interaction between magnetic dipoles.

  • Study of the arrangement of magnetic nanoparticles in magnetotactic bacteria through the measurement of their magnetic anisotropy using Continuous Wave EPR or, more exactly, ferromagnetic resonance, at various microwave frequencies.

ACADEMIC BACKGROUND



  • Master of Physics, University of Zaragoza, June 1997

  • Doctor of Science (Physics), University of Zaragoza, December 2002

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE


After receiving my doctorate, I continued my professional activity at the ETH Zurich in Switzerland. There I developed my knowledge of advanced EPR techniques in the group of Arthur Schweiger, and later under Gunnar Jeschke. During this time I also assisted in teaching lectures and laboratories in physical chemistry.
