Andrés is a Colombian researcher who graduated from Universidad Industrial de Santander (Bucaramanga, Colombia) as engineer in 2013. He carried out his Master and Ph.D. studies in the Group of Electrocatalysis and Polymer Electrochemistry (GEPE) at the University of Alicante (Spain), through the Santiago Grisolia fellowship, under the supervision of Prof. Emilia Morallón and Prof. Diego Cazorla. His research was centred in electrochemical functionalization for bioelectrochemical applications as biofuel cells and biosensors. Andrés received his Ph.D. in 2020. In 2021, he worked with Prof. Francisco Montilla in the Group of Electrocatalysis and Polymer Electrochemistry (GEPE) at the University of Alicante (Spain) coupling spectrochemical techniques with electrochemical methods for in situ measurements in conjugated polymers. In 2022 he joined the Scanlon Electrochemistry Laboratory working on the synthesis of electrode materials for energy-storage applications.
Currently, he is an AMBER Maria Skłodowska-Curie ADMIRE postdoctoral fellowship focused on the investigation of electrode materials based on conductive polymers through electropolymerisation at an electrified liquid|liquid interface for applications in energy-storage devices. Andrés' research interests are multi-faceted and related to electrochemistry, electrochemistry at liquid-liquid interfaces, conductive polymers, energy-storage devices and bioelectrochemistry.
