Synthesis and structural and microstructural characterization of ceramic materials. Specially in ceramic materials for energy conversion systems, focused on the development of high temperature electroceramics to enhance the efficiency of the nature-friendly Intermediate Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (IT-SOFC), including protonic and oxidic conductors as electrolytes and electronic and ionic mixed conductors as electrodes. Also on ceramic materials for catalytic applications.
