CSIC Research Prof

Group Leader

Prof. Pedro Gómez-Romero completed his undergraduate and Master’s degrees at the Universitat de València, before going on to earn his PhD with Distinction in Chemistry at Georgetown University (USA) in 1987. A CSIC Researcher since 1990, he worked at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB) from 1990 to 2007. He spent a sabbatical year as a NATO Senior Research Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (USA, 1998-99). He became a CSIC Full Research Professor in 2006 and was group leader of the NEO-Energy laboratory at the former CIN2 (CSIC) from 2007 to 2013, now forming part of the ICN2. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. As group leader of the ICN2 Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group, he heads projects on hybrid organic-inorganic nanostructures, nanocomposite materials for energy storage and conversion (lithium batteries, supercapacitors, flow cells, solar-thermal energy, nanofluids, graphene). He was vice-director of MATGAS from 2010 to 2014.

Prof. Pedro Gómez-Romero is the author of more than 200 scientific publications in international refereed journals. He is the scientific editor of the books Functional Hybrid Materials (P. Gómez-Romero, C. Sánchez (Eds.) (Wiley-VCH 2004)) and Metal Oxides in Supercapacitors (D P. Dubal, P. Gomez-Romero (Eds.) (Elsevier, 2017)). He is also the author of four award-winning popular science books (Metaevolución. La Tierra en el espejo, Celeste, 2001; Un planeta en busca de energía, Síntesis, 2007; Creadors de futur, Bromera, 2016; and Nanomundo, Materia/El País, Nov. 2016).
