I got my degree in Physics at the University of
Granada in 1988. In 1989, I got a Master Degree in Physics (Tesina de
Licenciatura) at the University of Granada concerning the stability and
interaction energy between particles in dilute suspensions. I got the first
award of the Spanish Company of Penicillin and Antibiotics (CEPA) in the
National Scientific Contest of 1990 for energetic studies about the stability of
pharmaceutical suspensions. I got my PhD in Physics in 1993 at the
University of Granada with a work entitled: Analysis of the conductivity and
dielectric properties of suspensions. Comparison between experimental
results and theoretical predictions” which deserved the Extraordinary Award of
the Doctorate in Applied Physics at the University of Granada in 1993. From
1996 to 2012 I have been Associate Professor at the Department of Applied
Physics I at the University of Málaga. Since 2012 I am full Professor of
Applied Physics at the University Málaga.
My recent research areas have been:
-The electrokinetics of concentrated suspensions of nanoparticles in ionic
media based on cell models.
-The generalization of the standard model of the electroviscous effect of dilute
suspensions with dynamic double layers, and its generalization for
concentrated suspensions in ionic media.
-The electrokinetic of suspensions of nanoparticles with finite ion size effects.
-Non-equilibrium effects in electrokinetics and rheology of suspensions of
-The electrokinetics of non-aqueous suspensions of nanoparticles.
-Theoretical modelization of realistic concentrated suspensions in aqueous
I have supervised three Doctoral Thesis: one at the University of Granada
with International Doctorate Mention and maximum qualification (Cum Laude),
and two at the University of Málaga with maximum qualification (Cum Laude)
and one with the European Doctorate Mention.
I have been the principal investigator of two National Projects: FIS2007-62737
(MEC) and FIS2010-18972 (MICINN), and the principal investigator of one
Excellence Project of the Junta de Andalucía P08-FQM-3779 on the
Electrokinetics and Rheology of Suspensions of Nanoparticles.
I have participated as a researcher in 14 other Research Projects: DGICIT,
CICIT, INTAS (EUROPEAN UNON), INTEGRATED ACTIONS (SPAIN-
ITALIAN), MCyT, MEC, MICIINN, RAMÓN ARECES FOUNDATION, etc.
I have also:
-69 research articles in the Science Citation Index.
-87 communications in International Congresses.
In the near future I will start working on the simulation research of
microfluidics with special interest in lab on a chip micro-devices..
