Alberto obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Zaragoza (2014–2018) under the supervision of Dr. Pilar Romero and Dr. Mercedes Marcos. His PhD work was focused on the preparation of functional liquid crystals and their application in organic electronics, proton-conductive materials, nanoporous polymers and drug delivery. At that time, he also undertook pre-doctoral stays at the Eindhoven University of Technology (Prof. Albert Schenning) and at the University of Calabria (Prof. Attilio Golemme). In 2018, he joined Prof. Tim Swager’s group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a postdoc to work on complex smart colloids, chemical sensors and chiro-optical materials. After 4 years at MIT, he joined the Liquid Crystal and Polymers Group as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow. Since January 2023, Alberto is a Ramón y Cajal Researcher and his research is focused on innovative designs of functional self-assembled materials for addressing critical global challenges in the areas of soft-robotics, photonics, organic electronics, point-of-care biosensing and environmental remediation.
