Emilio Palomares is ICREA Research Professor at the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) (http://www.iciq.org/research/research_group/prof-emilio-palomares/).
He joined ICIQ in 2006 as a tenure-track and was appointed ICREA Researcher in 2008 In 2009 he was selected as ERCstg by the European Research Council. Emilio’s research interests span a range of targets with emphasis on materials for energy production and bio- applications, in the context of electron transfer processes, photovoltaic applications and nanoscience.
In the last 8 years (since he joined ICIQ back in 2006) Prof. Palomares has published over 100 papers in peer reviewed journals about molecular photovoltaic devices and novel materials for bio-application in human health. Emilio has given over 50 lectures in scientific meetings and research institutions, and supervised 10 Ph.D. Theses. He has been invited as guest editor for several special issues (ChemSusChem) in well-known international journals. He serves as a member of the Advisory Editorial Board of Energy and Environmental Science.
Prof. Palomares has received several research awards including the Marie Curie European Fellowship in 2002, The Young Researcher Fellowship at the International Conference on Photochemical Conversion and Storage of Solar Energy in 2002, The Ramon y Cajal Fellowship in 2003, The Roscoe Medal in 2004 at the Younger European Chemist’s Conference (Highlights of European Chemical Research and R&D), The Invited Sigma-Aldrich Lecture for Young Chemists, 2004, The Young Chemist Research Award by The Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry in 2006 and The INNOVA Award by the SusChem Spanish Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry in 2010.
