• 2008-2011: I obtain the Grade in Physics from the Autonomus Unibersity of Barcelona.
  • 2011-2012: Master degree in Nanoscience from the University of the Basque Country. The master thesis Stability of divacancy defects in bilayer graphene from first principles was carried out in CIC nanoGUNE under the supervision of Prof. Emilio Artacho.
  • 2013: FPI PhD grant from the Ministery of Spain.
  • 2013-2017: PhD in Physics of Nanostructures and Advanced Materials from the University of the Basque Country under the supervision of Emilio Artacho in CIC nanoGUNE, Donostia (Spain). The title of the thesis is Theoretical Simulations of Nanoconfined Water and you can find it here.
  • 2016-2017: Master degree in Formation of Teachers in Spain.
