PhD in Chemistry (Physical Chemistry of Surfaces). CONACyT SNI-1. Scientific research interest is focused on the physics of surfaces, particularly carbon materials 0D, 1D and 2D. Theoretically, the handling of quantum chemical approaches (e.g. density functional methods) is covered to understand the phenomena of adsorption and chemical bonding including mechanisms of reaction. The algebraic treatments are (i.e. first principles) carried out to derive expressions for computational purposes as well. Experimentally, material characterization includes XRD, AFM, XPS and N2 absorption techniques; biocompatibility is studied using flow cytometry analysis and confocal microscopy.
