Amaia Zurutuza / Scientific Director /


Amaia Zurutuza obtained her PhD in Polymer Chemistry from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (UK) in 2002. During her PhD she worked in the research of novel polymers for biomedical applications. After completing her PhD she did two post-doctoral fellowships working within two European projects in the field of molecularly imprinted polymers. At the beginning of 2004, she joined Controlled Therapeutics Scotland Ltd. (UK) where she was a Senior Polymer Scientist working in the R&D of new controlled drug delivery systems. Her research contribution in Controlled Therapeutics lead to the publication of 3 patents in novel biodegradable and biostable polymers for controlling drug delivery. In April 2010 she joined Graphenea as the Scientific Director.

Jose M. Pitarke / Board Member


Prof. Pitarke studied Physics at the University of the Basque Country, where he received his PhD degree (with distinction) in 1990 studying some aspects of tunneling spectroscopy and electron and photon emission in solids. After a postdoctoral stay at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (USA) in the group of Rufus Ritchie, he obtained, in 1993, a permanent position at the University of the Basque Country, which he combined with sabbatical semesters at various USA Universities and the Imperial College of the University of London, UK. Since 2000, he has been full professor of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of the Basque Country. His research interests include condensed matter theory, many-body interactions at solid surfaces and nanostructures, dynamical response of solid materials, nanophotonics, and the interaction of charged particles with nanostructures. Prof. Pitarke is By-Fellow of the Churchill College of the University of Cambridge since 2005. He is also the Director of the Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center nanoGUNE since its creation in 2006.


Manish Chhowalla / Scientific Advisor


Manish is a Professor and the Donald H Jacobs Chair in Applied Physics in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Rutgers University (NJ, USA). He is also the Director of the Nanotechnology for Clean Energy Program at Rutgers. He received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1998 where he stayed on to do a postdoc until 2000 when he was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. In January of 2003, he joined Rutgers as an Assistant Professor. He moved to Imperial College London for one year between 2009 and 2010 before returning to Rutgers. He currently holds a Visiting Professorship at Imperial. He has won the US National Science Foundation’s Early CAREER Award. His research interests are in large area electronics from solution processable materials.


Luis Hueso / Scientific Advisor

Luis Hueso

Luis Hueso received a PhD in Physics for the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2002. Subsequently he moved to the University of Cambridge (UK) as a Marie Curie Fellow. In Cambrigde he switched his previous research topic (magnetic oxides) to carbon nanotube devices. After three years in Cambridge he obtained another postdoctoral position at the Italian National Research Council, where he joined a group working in the nascent field of spintronics with organic materials. In 2007, Luis Hueso obtained a permanent teaching and research position at the University of Leeds (UK). Since late 2008 he is an Ikerbasque Research Professor and leader of the Nanodevices group at CIC nanoGUNE. Luis Hueso has published more than 50 article along his research career, some of them is journals as prestigious as Nature, Nature Physics or Nature Materials. He has also been in the program committee of different international conferences, such as the March Meeting of the American Physical Society or the Magnetism and Magnetic Materials Conference.


Tomás Palacios / Scientific Advisor

Tomas Palacios

Prof. Palacios studied Telecommunication Engineering at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and received his PhD from the University of California – Santa Barbara in 2006. Since that year, he leads the Advanced Semiconductor Materials and Devices Group at the Microsystems Technology Laboratories of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research focuses on the development of new electronic devices to advance the fields of information technology, biosensors and energy conversion. He is especially interested in the combination of new materials (GaN and graphene), nanotechnologies and novel devices concepts.
Prof. Palacios’ work has been recognized with several awards including the 2011 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the 2010 Young Scientist Award of the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors (ISCS), the 2009 ONR Young Investigator Award, the 2009 NSF CAREER Award, the 2008 DARPA Young Faculty Award, the 2006 UCSB Lancaster Award, the Young Researcher Award at the 6th International Conference on Nitride Semiconductors, the European Prize Salva i Campillo, as well as multiple best papers awards. He has authored more than 200 contributions on advanced semiconductor devices in international journals and conferences, 40 of them invited, and several book chapters and patents.
Since 2006, Prof. Palacios has been leading the development of new applications for graphene-based materials. In 2010, he founded the MIT Center for Graphene Devices and Systems, with the goal to coordinate the graphene work at MIT. He is also the co-founder of the IEEE MTT Nanotechnology Committee and the MTT Distinguished Microwave Lecturer on graphene nanotechnology.
