Brief resume of Eduardo Gil Santos´ Curriculum Vitae
duardo Gil Santos graduated in Physics in 2007 (USC). He joined the Bionanomechanics Laboratory (CSIC) in October 2007 through a national competitive grant (JAE Predoc). He obtained his PhD in Physics in May 2012. At that time, he worked on the development of novel devices, concepts and techniques in order to improve the capabilities of micro- and nano-mechanical sensors, always looking for biological and biomedicine applications.
In February 2013, he joined the Materials and Quantum Phenomena Laboratory (Paris Diderot University, France) thanks to an international competitive grant (Research in Paris). During this time, he learnt theoretical and experimental aspects about optomechanical devices and their applications. He opened a new research line focused on the development of optomechanical resonators for sensing applications.
In November 2016, he came back to the Bionanomechanics Laboratory by means of a European grant (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, Individual Fellowship) with the goal of applying optomechanical devices as biological sensors. Currently, he is a «Ramón y Cajal» researcher working at the Bionanomechanics Laboratory.
In the last years, he has obtained six national project as principal investigator (ComFuturo, RETOS, «Ramón y Cajal», «Intramural Especial», «Fundación Ramón Areces» and «Leonardo») which has enabled him to consolidate his own research line. His main research objective is to develop optomechanical devices as biological sensors, definitively bringing them to the society. Apart from his own projects, he is involved in several European projects (ERC-CoG and FET-proAct, among others).
His scientific work has been published in 1 book chapter, 30 ISI-indexed articles and 4 patents (1 licensed, 2 granted and 1 registered). This work has received 831 citations (WoS), with an h-index of 16 (WoS).
