I'm currently a Lead Scientist within the LCLS Chemical Sciences Department at SLAC and the Group Lead of the Biochemistry and Condensed Phase Chemistry Group composed of >10 scientists, RA’s and students. This group is responsible for experiments on ultrafast photochemical dynamics in condensed phase performed at multiple LCLS instruments. The aforementioned department and group's mission is to perform research and support and ensure the success of such experiments at LCLS by operating, maintaining and upgrading its instrumentation. This also involves supporting (including planning and performing) forefront experiments in ultrafast X-ray science using LCLS.
I joined SLAC in 2009 after obtaining my bachelor degree in Physics from the University of Oviedo in Spain followed by a Master of Science in Physics by the University of Grenoble in France and a PhD in Earth Science from the University of Camerino in Italy, both through research performed at the ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) in Grenoble, France. I started my SLAC career as a Research Associate working at both SSRL and LCLS light sources and later held different positions at LCLS until my current role as a Lead Scientist and Group Lead.
