Research areas

His early research interests included material science: inorganic nanostructured materials and the synthesis of nanocrystals for biomedical applications, as well as materials characterization (crystallographic, morphological and granulometric). He has recently taken an interest in the study of micro- and nanoplastic ingestion effects in animals and humans, by recreating microplastic pollutants found in environments. Computer science has been his long-standing interest, with special focus on data science, data engineering and machine learning algorithms, which he is trying to implement in his research.

Keywords: microplastic, nanoplastic, hydrothermal synthesis, nanocrystal synthesis, data engineering, machine learning
