Group Leader

Prof. Pedro Gómez-Romero completed his BS and MS in Chemistry at the Universitat de València (Spain), before going on to earn his PhD in chemistry with distinction 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, spending a sabbatical year as a NATO Senior Research Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (USA) in 1998-99. In 2007 he moved to the former Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Research Centre (CIN2) as group leader of the NEO-Energy lab. When CIN2 became ICN2 in 2013, Prof. Gómez-Romero became group leader of the Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group, heading up projects on hybrid organic-inorganic nanostructures, nanocomposite materials for energy storage and conversion.

CSIC Full Professor since 2006, Prof. Gómez-Romero was named Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) (since 2014) and was the vice-director of MATGAS between 2010 and 2013.

In 2017 he received the CIDETEC prize for research in electrochemistry. He has authored over 200 scientific publications in international peer-reviewed journals, and 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 one of the founders of the spin-off Earthdas for graphene energy storage (2016-). Prof. Gómez-Romero 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, 2016).
