David González Rodríguez
Dr. David Gonzalez-Rodriguez (Madrid, 1976) obtained his degree in Chemistry in 1999 at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He then joined the Nanoscience and Molecular Materials research group of Prof. Tomas Torres at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), where he obtained his PhD in Organic Chemistry in 2003. After two consecutive stays in the groups of Prof. D. M. Guldi (University of Notre Dame, USA) and L. Echegoyen (Clemson University, USA), he joined the laboratories of Prof. E.W. (Bert) Meijer, at the Eindhoven University of Technology (NL), as a Marie Curie Intra-European postdoctoral fellow (2005-2008).
David has been awarded with several prizes for young researchers: the 2010 SUSCHEM Prize, the 2011 Sigma-Aldrich Emerging Investigator Award of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ), the 2012 Young Investigator Award from the International Society of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines, the 2012 Young Researcher Award from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, or the 2019 Barluenga Medal from the RSEQ Organic Chemistry Division. He is also a member of the international advisory board of Chemical Communications.
Since 2012, he leads the group of Nanostructured Molecular Systems and Materials (MSMn) at the UAM comprising ca. 10-15 researchers and funded by several National and European actions, among them a ERC-Starting Grant (PROGRAM-NANO) and 2 ERC-Proof of Concept Grants (CompAd and PolyHeal). The group’s research interests focus on the development of new, versatile strategies to improve or create novel functions in organic materials by rationally ordering molecules at the nanoscale using the tools of self-assembly. The potential applications of such molecular nanostructured systems are diverse, and focus on optoelectronic π-functional devices, self-healing polymers, catalysis, biomedicine, or nanoporous membranes.
