I am a Lecturer at the Chemistry Department of Swansea University, and Research Affiliate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I am passionate about sustainablity, people, data, and education. I lead a research group focused on computational chemistry and artificial inteligence for the development of bioinspired biobased nanomaterials that tackle challenges to sustainable development goals, e.g., climate action, resilient infrastructure, precision agriculture, and energy storage. Social inquiry, inclusion, and equity are essential to sustainable development, and therefore I advocate for social justice and socially-directed science and technology, collaborating with Station1, an educational non-profit that fosters social-driven innovation. I am also the Athena SWAN officer for the Chemistry Department. Outside academia, I am member of the advisory board of Sweetwater Energy, and integrated biorefinery, Science Policity collaborator for the Society of Spanish Researchers in the UK (SRUK), and I have served as President of the Association of Spanish Scientist in the USA (ECUSA).
