Postdoc Researcher


José Manuel VIcent Luna obtained his degree in physics in the University of Córdoba (Spain) and his master degree in Science and Technology of Colloids and Interphases in the University Pablo de Olavide, Seville (Spain). In 2018 and in the same institution, he obtained his Ph.D degree in molecular simulation of ionic liquids and porous materials for energy-related applications. Until the beginning of 2019, he worked as post-doc researcher in his former research group when he obtained a fellowship to carry out a five months post-doctoral research stay in the, Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, Laboratory of Separation and Reaction Engineering (Portugal). He joined our group in September 2019 and his work focuses on the study of perovskites solar cells via classical molecular dynamics (MD) and Density Functional based Tight Binding (DFTB) techniques.
