Research Fields:

I am an experimentalist and my research aims at the control and understanding of the structure-properties relationships. More specifically, I am interested in nanoparticles and nanocomposites and the following topics: I- use of sol-gel chemistry to prepare nanostructured materials with prospective applications; II- magnetism and the spin-lattice couplings in oxides; III-stabilization of metastable polymorphs.
