In October 2011, I obtained a position as a Professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid, following prior positions as an educator and researcher at various public and private institutions including the Universidad Pontificia Comillas-ICAI, Universidad Alfonso X «El Sabio,» and Complutense University of Madrid. Since July 2022, I have held the position of Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). In addition to an intense teaching activity (more than 6900 hours), I have participated in 21 research projects, both national and international, being the main researcher of 9 of them. I have published approximately 104 scientific articles. Citations (January 2024): 3245; h-index: 29; i10-index: 53. My research focuses on the development of novel coordination polymers with molecular recognition and response to stimuli that can be used in the manufacture of complex nanodevices or current as downconverters in photovoltaic modules. I have served as a peer reviewer for scientific journals such as Inorg. Chem., Chem. Sci., Polymers, ICA, Eur. J. Mat… I am also a collaborator of the Coordination and Evaluation subdivision of the State Research Agency (AEI) and of PROJECTS CALL FOR YOUNG DOCTORS 2021 OF THE UCM (MULTI-YEAR AGREEMENT WITH THE COMMUNITY OF MADRID). President of the Chair created by the “Regional Institute of Safety and Health at Work and the Autonomous University of Madrid (IRSST-UAM)”: titled: R&D&i in the prevention of occupational risks from the point of view of green chemistry and circular economy (2023-2026). Secretary of the “Institute for Advanced Research in Chemistry of the UAM (IAdChem)”. I have directed 4 doctoral theses and 3 more in progress, 23 final degree projects and 10 final master’s projects. I have given 23 national and international conferences. I have also collaborated and directed projects for innovation and improvement of teaching quality. For the past 13 years I have been coordinated the scientific dissemination project, «Knowing science Today opens the doors of Tomorrow», founded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) and by the Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry (Madrid territorial section) (RSEQ-STM) (www.nanomadrid.net ), conducting educational workshops in different educational centers. Moreover, I have organized scientific dissemination conferences such as «The Thousand Faces of the Periodic Table,» «The Energy Transition: Is It Truly Sustainable?» and «Transformer 4: The Chemical Aspect of the VirusMania» hosted at the UAM on November 14, 2019, June 17, and October 27, 2022, respectively. Finally, I am honored to have received several awards, including the Third Prize in the I Edition of the «Science at School» Contest at UAM (2014), the Salvador Senent Prize in 2015, the First Prize in the «Periodic Tables 2019» competition organized by the Faculty of Sciences of the UAM, and the Third Place in the 1st RIS4CIVIS Science Communication Award in 2024 for the «Knowing Science Today Opens the Doors of Tomorrow» project.

Dr. Jaime Cuevas, full professor since 2002, led the Department of Geology and Geochemistry from 2019 to 2022. He is a member of the «Clays for Environmental Control» research team, he specializes in surface environments mineralogy and geochemistry, focusing on clay minerals and their interaction with engineered geomaterials, particularly cementitious materials. Dr. Cuevas is an expert in microstructural and geochemical characterization of minerals, including concrete-clay interaction in geochemical barriers and biochemical degradation in landfill bottom liners. With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Cuevas has headed > 20 research projects funded by national and international entities. Notable projects include the national initiatives «The Diffusion of Pollutants in Urban Landfill Barriers» (2007-2010) and «Experimentation in Geo- and Bio-inspired Synthesis Routes for Sepiolite Formation» (2009-2011). Internationally, he led UAM’s contribution to projects like «Long-term Performance of Engineered Barrier Systems» (2010-2014), «Cement-based Materials, Properties, Evolution, Barrier Functions» (2015-2019), and «European Joint Program on Radioactive Waste Management» (2020-2024). In applied research, he directed projects such as thermochemical conversion of waste with asbestos and the FEBEX radioactive waste deep geological storage simulation experiment. Dr. Cuevas has 80 published research papers (46 in Q1 and 19 in D1), an H index of 29, and over 100 conference contributions. He has supervised 11 Ph.D. theses and 12 Master’s theses. Engaging in academic and social transfer activities, he initiated and leads the Master’s program in Waste Management and Wastewater for Resource Recovery since 2018. Actively involved in scientific societies, Dr. Cuevas is the president of the Spanish Clay Society (SEA) since June 2022. He organized the XXIV scientific meeting of the SEA in 2016 and chaired the session of clay barriers at the 16th International Clay Conference in 2017. Additionally, he actively promotes the concept of Circular Economy in the university and engages in societal-relevant issues, contributing to meetings between the university and private companies such as ENRESA, ECOEMBES, SIGNUS, SIGAUS, FERROVIAL, PREZERO, SACYR, FCC, URBASER, TOLSA, among others. He participated in 2020-2021 in the «Circular Municipalities» project, a collaboration between the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) and the CIVIS European University through the UAM’s CIVIS Open Lab.

José Alemán received his bachelor’s degree from the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) (1995-2000). In 2003, he spent six months in Professor Albert Padwa’s laboratory at Emory University (Atlanta, USA) working on remotely enantiocontrolled Pummerer reactions. In 2006, he completed his doctoral thesis focused on the application of sulfur chemistry in asymmetric synthesis with the highest distinction («Summa Cum Laude») under the supervision of García-Ruano. Additionally, he was awarded the Lilly Research Award in 2005 as one of the best chemistry doctoral students in Spain and for the best doctoral thesis at the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2005/2006. Then, due to the excellent results obtained during his doctoral studies, he was awarded a two-year postdoctoral fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Science to carry out his postdoctoral stay in Denmark (2006-2008) in the group of Professor Karl A. Jørgensen, working in the area of organocatalysis. In 2009, he moved to the Department of Organic Chemistry at the Autonomous University of Madrid with a «Juan de la Cierva» contract (ranked No. 1 in chemistry for 2009). In 2010, he became a Ramón y Cajal researcher (No. 1 in chemistry). During this period, the applicant worked on new research lines on organocatalysis. In 2015, he received an ERC Consolidator Grant awarded by the European Research Council, a PoC-ERC-2019, and has obtained more than 19 projects in competitive calls.
