Bio and Research Interests:
Carlos Echeverría-Arrondo (Bachelor's degrees in Industrial Engineering and Physics at the Universidad Pública de Navarra in 1999 and the UNED in 2013, respectively, and Ph.D. degree in 2010) worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universidad del País Vasco from 2011 to 2014, and at the Centro de Física de Materiales (CFM-CSIC) in San Sebastián, Spain, for the first half of 2015. During these years of investigation he reached remarkable goals such as the discovering of a new crystal phase in nanowires of a shape-memory alloy and of unexpected optoelectronic and magnetic properties in doped magnetic quantum dots. In addition, he helped to understand the spin dynamics in nanoscale systems promising in the expanding field of spintronics, and had important contributions in the area of quantum reactive scattering. He has published 13 papers which received so far about 100 citations. Presently he works at the Institute of Advanced Materials in Castelló, Spain, since June 2016, where he is a full-time researcher on novel materials for photovoltaics and hydrogen production from water splitting. At this center he is currently engaged in the study of contact interfaces in perovskite solar cells. For this task, he performs theoretical calculations based on density functional theory and ab initio software packages like VASP, Siesta, and Quantum Espresso. Part of this work is done in collaboration with other scientists like Claudio Quarti at the University of Mans (Belgium).
