Professional biography

I am a Marie Curie Research Fellow within the FP7-PEOPLE ITN ARGENT (Advanced Radiotherapy, Generated by Exploiting Nanoprocesses and Technologies), under the supervision of Prof. Nigel Mason (Open University), Prof. Andrey V. Solov'yov (MBN Research Center, Frankfurt am Main, Germany), and Dr. Fred Currell (Queen's University Belfast).

My project within ARGENT, "Multiscale understanding of radiation biodamage", is about the theoretical description and understanding of the physical phenomena involved in ion beam cancer tharapy.

Previously, I have been doing my PhD research with Profs. Isabel Abril and Rafael Garcia-Molina at the Aplied Physics Department of the University of Alicante (Spain), about theoretical models for describing electronic interactions of energetic ion beams with biomaterials and secondary electron production, and the use of such models in Monte Carlo simulation.

Research interests

- Interaction of radiation with biological systems.

- Stopping of energetic ions in biological media and electron production in realistic biomaterials.

- Biophysical models: prediction of cell response to radiation interaction.

- Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics simulations

External collaborations

I am currently involved in several research projects with theoreticians all around the world, such as Isabel Abril (Universitat d'Alacant, Spain), Rafael Garcia-Molina (Universidad de Murcia, Spain), Eugene Surdutovich (Oakland University, USA), or Maurizio Dapor (University of Trento, Italy).

I have also collaborated recently with experimental researchers, such as Helmut Paul (University of Linz, Austria), and Moni Behar (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil).
