Alberto started his academic career in 2008 studying Chemical Engineering at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) (Barcelona, Spain). In 2014 he got his Bachelor’s degree with a research project on novel high impact resistant epoxy-anhidride polymeric networks modified with hyperbranched stars in the group of Prof. dr. Xavier Ramis. During the last year of his Bachelor’s degree, he did a 1-year internship at DSM Coating Resins. Afterwards he moved to Tarragona (Spain) and started his phD at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) in the design and characterization of actively-moving polymers obtained via dual-curing processing under the supervision of Prof. dr. Silvia de la Flor and Prof. dr. Xavier Fernández-Francos. He got his phD in 2018 with a cum laude mention. He currently works as a postdoctoral researcher in the Stimuli-responsive Functional Materials and Devices group (TUe) (Eindhoven, Netherlands).
