Alberto Escudero (graduated with a degree in Chemistry from the University of Seville in 2003 and Doctor by the same University in 2007) is currently working as a JAE-DOC postdoctoral researcher at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Sevilla. His current research studies the size- and shape- controlled synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles with optical and biomedical applications. He is a regular user of material characterization techniques such as TEM, MAS – NMR, and XRD. After shorts stays at the Material Science Institutes of Madrid and Barcelona he developed his doctoral thesis on the synthesis and characterization of rare earth silicate systems at the Material Science Institute of Seville, including visits to the University of Turku, Finland, and the University of California – Santa Barbara, USA. In August 2007 he started a postdoctoral contract within the European Marie Curie “c2c” Network at theInstitutfürGeowissenschaften of the University of Jena, Germany, in cooperation with Dr.FalkoLangenhorst. Afterwards he moved to the BayerischesGeoinstitut of the University of Bayreuth, Germany, where he stayed as a postdoctoral researcher until the end of 2010. His research at the German institutes was focused on the synthesis and characterization of materials at high pressure and high temperature, with special attention to the effect of dopants such as Al, Si, and Cr on the chemistry and microstructure of TiO2 at high pressure.
