Linies de recerca:
 Phase transitions in systems with interplay between structure, magnetism, ..., and disorder, 
from experimental and theoretical point of view.

Topics of present interest:

- Phase stability and vibrational properties of materials
- Magnetic shape-memory materials
- Precursor nanoscale modulations to phase transitions
- Magnetocaloric effect
- Hysteresis and avalanches in disordered systems
- Thermodynamics of non-extensive and small systems
