Sergio Carrasco obtained the degrees in Chemistry (2010) and Materials Engineering (2013). He got 60 ECTS in MSc Organic Chemistry (2011) to obtain the PhD degree in Advanced Chemistry (2016). His PhD thesis has been awarded with the Special doctorate award and recognized by SEA and RSEQ as one of the best theses defended in 2016/2017. He has developed his career at Complutense University of Madrid (UCM, PhD in molecularly imprinted polymers-MIPs for sensing, 2010-2016) and Stockholm University (post-doc in metal-organic frameworks-MOFs for catalysis in 2017-2020). He has published 15 manuscripts (264 citations, H-index = 10), 3 book chapters, 1 patent and participated in more than 25 conferences with oral communications, posters and invited seminars/symposiums. He has performed several research stays at high-top European labs in different areas such as CIC biomaGUNE (Au nanoparticles, San Sebastián), UPM-ISOM (lithography, Madrid), CSIC-IDAEA (water analysis, Barcelona), CSIC-ICTP (linear co-polymers, Madrid) and BAM (fluorescent polymers, Berlin). He has participated in several courses, teaching and student supervision, managing R&D activities, writing project proposals with successful results (MSCA-GOT Energy Talent-COFUND and for beamtimes at synchrotron facilities) and being invited for paper contributions (2 publications as corresponding author). Since 2019, he is a member of the editorial board of Open Chemistry journal (De Gruyter Open), in the area of Material Science. He is currently working between URJC and IMDEA-Energy (since March, 2020), developing his project based on CO2 valorization using MOFs as catalysts.
