Daniel obtained his Master’s degree in 2013 at the University of Castilla-La Mancha working on the functionalization of carbon nanohorns to fight climate change. After that, he moved to the University of Trieste (Italy) to do his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Maurizio Prato and Prof. Silvia Marchesan that he defended in 2017. During his doctoral studies, he focused on the integration of carbon nanomaterials of different nanomorphology into hybrids with a second component of different nature. After a postdoctoral experience in Trieste, in 2019 he moved to the Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires at the University of Strasbourg (France) to work in the team of Prof. Paolo Samorì as postdoctoral researcher. His research focused on the use of organic and supramolecular chemistry to develop new functional nanomaterials with application in sensing and electronics. In 2021, he joined the laboratory of Prof. Thomas Hermans at the same institute to work on transient supramolecular nanomaterials.
In 2022, he joined our team thanks to the international talent recruitment María Zambrano program. His research is at the frontier of organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, materials science and nanotechnology and aims to build new functional nanomaterials for sensing, catalysis and electronics.
