Short Bio: 

Alberto de Mora got his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM, 2016). His Final Degree Project was entitled “Study of diacetyl-bis (4-cyclohexyl-3-thiosemicarbazone) coordination compounds with the metals group 12” which was developed in the department of Inorganic Chemistry (UAM). During this stage, he carried out curricular practices at the San Pablo CEU University, researching the synthesis and characterization of solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC’s) electrodes. Later, at the same university, he completed a Master's degree in Applied Chemistry, coursing a specialization in Molecular Chemistry and Materials Chemistry, through which he presented his Master's Thesis entitled “Study of the reactivity of cyclohexylthiosemicarbazones against divalent metal ions”.

Once he finished his studies and during 2018, he worked as chemist at Repsol Company in the Organic Analytical Chemistry department. Later, he joined the startup called A3D Additive Printer, working in the development of smart and eco-efficient materials with vegetable and plastic fibers for printing with 3D technology, collaborating with the Instituto de Ciencias de las Construcción Eduardo Torroja (IETCC- CSIC).

Since February 2021, he is part of the Advanced Porous Materials Unit of the IMDEA Energy Foundation as a training researcher. His work is focused on the implementation of different porous materials for the removal of chlorate and chlorites from drinking water.
