Javier has been the Chair of Catalysis Engineering at the Institute for Chemical and Bioengineering, ETH Zurich since January 2010. He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Alicante and received his PhD degree at Delft University of Technology in 2002. Following a period in industry at Norsk Hydro and Yara International, he joined the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia as an ICREA Professor at ICIQ in Tarragona, Spain where he remained until his move to Zurich in 2010.
His research focuses on the design of catalytic materials tackling current and future energy, resource, and environmental challenges of society. He has been recognized by several awards, most recently the RSC Sustainable Energy Award (2017) and the Paul H. Emmett Award in Fundamental Catalysis for the North American Catalysis Society (2019). Since 2018, Javier is Isaac Manasseh Meyer Chair Visiting Professor at the National University of Singapore and directs the NUS Flagship Green Energy program.
