Jose Luis Valverde Palomino
Full professor of Chemical Engineering, Scientific Advisor of Graphenao SL, University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain)
Dr. Jose L. Valverde Palomino. He went on to get his Ph.D. from Complutense University of Madrid, Spain in 1991. His research activities developed as a Full Professor of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) have been focused on different subjects related to the conventional catalysis; the application of the electrochemical promotion of catalysis (EPOC) and electrocatalysis at high and low temperatures; the synthesis and uses of carbon nanostructures (carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, carbon nanospheres and graphene) as catalysts and as a part of polymer-based composites; the encapsulation of PCMs and catalysts; the pyrolysis, combustion and gasification of biomass; and the simulation and modelling of chemical processes. He authored and co-authored several book chapters, 4 patents and more than 215 research papers. He has been the principal investigator of about 60 research projects with European (4), National and Regional institutions, private companies and others with a total funding of more than 9.5 millions euros. He has also supervised 14 PhD students. He coordinates Project NANOLEAP funded by the European Commission (H2020- NMP-PILOTS-2014). In addition, he is scientific advisor of the Spanish company Graphenano, which is participating in the latter proposal.
