CSIC Research Professor

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 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 the ICN2 in 2013, Prof. Gómez-Romero became group leader of the ICN2 Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group, heading up projects on hybrid organic-inorganic nanostructures, nanocomposite materials for energy storage and conversion.

Becoming a CSIC Research Professor in 2006, Prof. Gómez-Romero has been a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) since 2014 and was the vice-director of MATGAS from 2010 to 2014. 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 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). In 2017 he received the CIDETEC prize for research in electrochemistry.
