Research Interests

  • nanotechnology
  • analysis, design and simulation of systems and materials of nanometer dimensions, especially those for the development of nanosensors and molecular electronics
  • design smaller electronic devices and other systems in order to increase their efficiency, speed and energy savings, as well as reduce their costs.
  • Has developed new scenarios for molecular devices and systems using molecular potentials and molecular vibrations for processing and transport of information at nanometer scales.
