PhD in polymer chemistry by the University of Liege (Belgium) in 1998. Then he carried out a post-doctoral stay at IBM Almaden Research Center and Stanford University in California. Back to Spain he worked for 10 years in CIDETEC.
In 2011 he became Ikerbasque Research Pofessor at POLYMAT (www.polymat.eu), University of the Basque Country. Since then he has been the leader of the Innovative polymer group. In 2011 he was awarded with a ERC consolidator grant named iPES “Innovative Polymers for Electrochemical Energy Storage”. His research interest include the synthesis of innovative polymers for energy and bioelectronics. In particular his team is developing new redox polymers, poly(ionic liquid)s, iongels and ion conducting polymer electrolytes. He is co-author of more than 265 scientific articles.
