Arturo J. Vizcaíno (07/10/1979) obtained his Bachelor and Master Degrees in Chemical Engineering at University of Castilla-La Mancha (1997-2002) and received his Ph.D. at Rey Juan Carlos University in 2007. He has developed his teaching and research career at Rey Juan Carlos University, as research grant holder (2003), teaching assistant (2003-2008) and assistant professor (2008-2009) in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Technology. Since September 2009, he works in the Department of Chemical and Energy Technology.
His teaching labour comprises several subjects related to the Degrees in Chemical Engineering, Enviromental Engineering, Energy Engineering, Environmental Sciences and Food Science and Technology , as well as the coordination of the Master Degree in Energy Technology and Resources.
His research work has been focused on the study of hydrogen production systems, based on steam reforming and water-gas shift, using supported metal catalysts. He has developed two stays as visiting researcher: one short stay (3 months) during his Ph.D. at the “Laboratorio de Procesos Catalíticos” in the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) under the supervision of Prof. Miguel A. Laborde and Norma E. Amadeo; and a postdoctoral stay (6 months) at the “Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse et l’Environnement de Lyon”, belonging to the “Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique” (France) under the supervision of Dr. Yves Schuurman. He is an associate member of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (2006-2007) and associate fellow of the Spanish Catalysis Society (from 2003).
