I joined the board in September 2018. The experience of the first few months has been rewarding and hugely positive in several dimensions. Upholding the values of the DNRF, I contribute to its mission using my training as a physicist, with an interest in both condensed matter physics and electrical and electronic engineering. As a board member one privilege is to learn about frontier research in a wide scope of knowledge areas. The enthusiasm of Danish researchers is felt in their proposals, reports and interviews. It offers hope for a better future, firmly anchored in excellent research, in part enabled by the DNRF, of which I am now a fan!
Originally from Chile, I was trained in the UK and held professorial appointments in Germany, Ireland and now in Spain. We carry out research in experimental physics, ranging from nanofabrication to nanophononics and nanophotonics, with the aim of advancing emerging information and communication technologies.
