----- Microelectronic materials, and micromachining techniques for fabrication of micro and nano structures (microfabrication), microelectronic devices, electroosmosis, dielectrophoresis, magnetophoresis, digital microfluidics (micro/nanofluidics), Lab-on-a-chip, organ-on-a-chip, electrowetting, photoelectrowetting, electrochemical sensors, electrochemical power sources, energy storage conversion applications, microbial electrolysis cells, single cell analysis, drug delivery, electrochemical instrumentation of embedded systems for programmable-system-on-a-chip applications, removal technologies for emerging pollutants (pharmaceuticals) in wastewater such as: advanced oxidation process, heterogeneous photocatalysis, fenton reactions, among others.
----- Electrodeposition techniques such as: electroless deposition, electrophoretic deposition, electrodeposition by using protic ionic liquids, electrodeposition with particulate suspensions (complex fluids), deposition by scanning bipolar cell among others to construct advanced materials with optical, electronic or magnetic properties for different applications in energy technologies, semiconductors, and health.
----- Design of electrochemical technology and processes, scaling analysis, and the development of mathematical modeling for electrochemical systems in conjunction with transport phenomena.
----- Using a combination of personal and professional skills to approaching science with a holistic view is a cornerstone interest. Consequently, my teaching philosophy is to use knowledge management to innovate in education and to build a networking system based on teams; therefore, a network of collaborations for interdisciplinary subjects, organizational theory, and continuing and active education are key elements to make a synergy effect on competences on people for obtaining better results, but more important for pursuing disruptive innovations.
