Bio and Research Interests:
Sixto Giménez (M. Sc. Physics 1996, Ph. D. Physics 2002) is Associate Professor at Universitat Jaume I de Castelló (Spain). His professional career has been focused on the study of particulated materials. During his PhD thesis at the University of Navarra, he studied the relationship between processing of metallic and ceramic powders, their sintering behavior and mechanical properties. He took a Post-Doc position at the Katholiek Universiteit Leuven (2003-2006) where he focused on the development of non-destructive and in-situ characterization techniques of the sintering behavior of metallic porous materials. In 2006-2007, he was responsible for a new research line on nanostructured particulated materials for magnetic applications at CEIT (Spain). In January 2008, he joined the University Jaume I where he is involved in the development of new concepts for photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical devices based on nanoscaled materials, particularly studying the optoelectronic and electrochemical responses of the devices by different spectroscopic techniques. He has co-authored more than 70 scientific papers in international journals and has received more than 3000 citations. His h-index is 26.
