Martin Velazquez Rizo

Ph.D. Students

Research Interests

Martin Velazquez-Rizo is focused on the development and characterization of new nitride heterostructures to be used in photocatalytic applications and light-emitting devices. His work includes new approaches to understand and improve current nitride-based photocatalysts using cocatalyst materials and the study of the crystalline properties of LEDs structures using electron microscopy analytical techniques.​
