Jordi Fraxedas (Tarragona, 1962) graduated in physics from the University of Zaragoza in 1985 and obtained his PhD (Dr rer. nat.) in 1990 from the Universität Stuttgart (Germany). His thesis work was performed at the Max Planck Institut for Solid State Research and at the Berliner Speicherring für Synchrotronstrahlung (BESSY), under the supervision of Prof. M. Cardona.

After holding a postdoctoral position at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble (France) and an established researcher position at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva (Switzerland), he joined the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona in 1995. He later worked as a research associate at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France) in 2002.

His research activity is focused on interfacial phenomena and surface science. He has co-authored more than 130 peer-reviewed scientific articles and published the books Molecular Organic Materials: From Molecules to Crystalline Solids (Cambridge University Press, 2006), Water at Interfaces: A Molecular Approach (Taylor and Francis CRC, 2014) and Molecular Materials: Preparation, Characterization, and Applications (Taylor and Francis/CRC 2017).
