Keywords: scattering nanoparticles iron oxide nanocellulose self-assembly

I graduated in Chemistry from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México ( UNAM), followed by Lic and PhD in Materials Chemistry from the Royal Institute of Technology ( KTH) and a postdoc at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona ( UAB) and the Institut Catalá de Nanotecnologia ( ICN) in Bellaterra, Catalonia, Spain. I became a researcher and group leader in Materials Chemistry at Stockholm University working mainly on the self-assembly and functional properties of nanoparticles, including nanocellulose. In 2019 I was appointed Senior Lecturer at the Solid State Physics at UU.

The emphasis of my research is devoted partly to the multiple length scale characterisation of sustainable nanomaterials such as nanocellulose or iron oxides and partly to the investigation of the functional properties of such nanomaterials, including magnetism, catalysis, and batteries. In the group we use the small-angle scattering and diffraction of electrons, neutrons, and X-rays as well as electron microscopy for the characterisation of the materials.
