Short Bio: 

Miguel García Tecedor (M.Sc. Applied Physics, 2013, Ph.D. Physics 2017, both at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, UCM). During his PhD, he developed his research at the FINE (Física de Nanomateriales Electrónicos) group at UCM on the growth and physical characterization of nano- and microstructures of semiconductor oxides with a deep study of the luminescent response of these materials and their possible applications in optoelectronic devices, such us waveguides, optical resonators, LEDs and photovoltaic devices.

In 2015, as part of his International PhD program, he joined the Solar Department of the Institutt for Energiteknikk (IFE), located in Kjeller, Norway, for seven months, where he focused on the synthesis and characterization of composite materials for silicon surface passivation in multicrystalline Si solar cells. On July 2017, he took a postdoc position at the Group of Advanced Materials and Energy (GAME) at Universitat Jaume I, to develop novel strategies for (photo)electrochemical and (photo)electrocatalytic applications, such as water splitting, CO2 reduction and environmental remediation. Specifically, he has been focused on the understanding of physical processes in semiconducting metal oxide-based devices by different electrical, optical and chemical spectroscopic techniques, as Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and Intensity Modulated Photocurrent Spectroscopy (IMPS).

He has a deep interest in the defective structure of semiconductor oxides, and the possibility of tuning them for different energy related applications, such as water splitting and CO2 reduction, and energy transport, such as waveguides and optical resonators. He has co-authored 22 scientific papers in international indexed journals, contributed with more than 20 communications to scientific congresses and filed 3 patents. He has also participated in 5 different research projects (2 European and 3 National projects).
