Research Overview

My work concerns the field of spintronics and electronic transport studied by combining model and fully first-principles methods.

The main aspects and topics, I am currently interested in, are:

1) Development of computational methods to study spin and charge transport in strongly correlated electronic systems,

2) Molecular electronics,

3) Hybrid organic/ferromagnet interfaces,

4) Molecular magnetism,

5) Spin Hall effect, topological materials and triplet superconductivity (work in collaboration with the Mesoscopic Physics Group in Donostia-San Sebastian http://cfm.ehu.es/mesoscopics/).

I am also Principal Investigator of the EU-funded Young Explorers' Future and Emerging Technologies project ACMOL, which aims at exploiting magnetic molecules and graphene in order to realize a switchable molecular spin-polarizer.
