Jesús del Barrio studied chemistry at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, and received his doctoral degree in 2010 with a thesis on photoresponsive polymers for optical applications. He then moved to the United Kingdom to work on supramolecular materials at The University of Cambridge with Professor Oren Scherman. His postdoctoral studies, supported in part by a Marie Curie Intra-European Research Fellowship, were in the area of host−guest interactions and macromolecular self-assembly in aqueous media. From 2014 to 2017, he was a research scientist at the Schlumberger Gould Research Centre in Cambridge (UK) carrying out both fundamental and applied research on a wide variety chemical technologies in the oil and gas industry. In May 2017, he joined the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragón ( as a Ramón y Cajal researcher. His work encompasses basic and applied research in the soft matter area aimed at developing innovative polymer fluids, viscoelastic systems, and stimuli-responsive materials.
