Meet the Author

Javier Garcia-Martinez is the Director of the Molecular Nanotechnology Lab at the University of Alicante (Spain) and co-founder of Rive Technology, Inc., an MIT spin-off commercializing advanced nanocatalysts for clean energy applications developed by Javier during his postdoctoral research. Previously, he worked at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) and UC Berkeley. Javier has received the TR 35 Award from MIT?s Technology Review magazine in 2007 and the Europa Medal, awarded annually to the outstanding European chemist under the age of 35. In 2009, the World Economic Forum recognized him as one of the Young Global Leaders. Since 2008, Javier is titular member of the Inorganic Chemistry Division of IUPAC. His research interests include a broad range of nanomaterials, mesoporous solids, zeolites, and catalysis, specially for energy-related applications.
