In 2007 he moved to the former CIN2 as the leader of the Pulsed Laser Deposition and Nanoionics Group, which later became the ICN2 Nanomaterials Growth Unit.

In 2012 he received the Somiya Award from the International Union of Materials Research Society (IUMRS) for his contributions to solid state ionics. He completed several stays at different laboratories: in 2014 he joined for three month the International Institute for Carbon-Neutral Research (I²CNER, Kyushu University) thanks to a grant from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. In 2015 stayed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) for a three-month period and between 2018 and 2019 he joined for a few months the Universida Técnica Federico Santamaría in Valparaíso (Chile).
