Afterwards he moved to San Luis Potosi, Mexico, for his M.Sc. degree in IPICyT where he worked together with Prof. Ana Paulina Barba and Prof. Mauricio Terrones in the project “Interaction of Carbon Nanotubes and Biological Systems”. He obtained the degree of M.Sc. in nanosciences and nanotechnologies in 2008.

Esaú obtained his PhD degree from the Universita degli Studi di Trieste (UniTs) in 2012 with the project entitled “Towards self assembled devices, a carbon nanotube approach” under the supervision of Prof. Maruzio Prato, (UniTs) and Dr. Francesco Bonaccorso (University of Cambridge). Esaú was awarded with a full scholarship from CONACYT (Mexican governent) to develop his PhD studies. During his PhD studies Esaú made a research stay in the University of Cambridge under the suppervision of Prof. Andrea Ferrari and Francesco Bonaccorso.
