Personal profile


Victor is a world-leading researcher in applied micro and nanotechnologies including photonics and micro-optics, microfluidics integration, mechanical systems and biosensing development. He gained his PhD from the department of physics at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. Victor was a Marie Curie Fellow from 2009-2012, looking at applications orientated micro and nano-technologies. He then moved to the Paul Scherrer Institute as Ambzione Fellow, to further his training in nanophotonics for sensing applications and lab-on-chip applications. Victor moved to Monash University in 2016 as a senior lecturer, in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace engineering. Victor leads the Applied Micro and Nano-Technology Lab, where his team are developing biological systems, micro-optics and sensing platforms.

His multidisciplinary works are clearly represented in all of his different publications.  Since 2005, Victor has published 46 peer-reviewed papers, accumulating more than 480 citations in high impact factor journals (such as the Nature journal Microsystems and Nanoengineering, Nature journal Light: Science & Applications, ACS Nano, Chemistry of Materials, Nanoscale or Lab on a Chip), and resulting in a h-index of 14 (according to Scopus, orcid.org/0000-0002-5103-8717). He have been invited to present my work in different international conferences, workshops and industrial events. My research has resulted in the generation of knowledge, novel technologies, devices for painless self-healthcare monitoring, IP licenses, new commercial products and the creation of a high-tech company. Hence, my research has a significant impact in the fields of micro- and nanotechnology, photonics, microoptics, optical sensing and integrated systems.

Victor joined the Centre to Impact AMR in 2020, as a founding member and currently is a member of the Comunity engagement and Industry strategic groups.


Research interests

The Applied Micro and Nanotechnology Lab was created in November 2016 in the frame of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash University. This new laboratory aims to use the most advance technologies and to develop novel process chains to address current challenges both in research and industrial applications, with a special focus on biological applications, photonics, microoptics, sensing platforms and functional smart surfaces. Our target is to develop scalable customer based technologies that and to develop integrated systems in accord to the specified applications.   
Key research areas: Microtechnology, Nanotechnology, Silicon, polymers, nanoreplication, surface engineering, photonics, microoptics, lab-on-a-chip, biosensors, chemical sensors, MEMS, MOEMS.
