Juan Casado serves an Associate Professor of physical chemistry at the University of Malaga (Spain). He received the B.S. degree (1994) and the Ph.D. degree in chemistry (1999) from the same university. Then, he moved to the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis (USA), where he conducted a postdoctoral research in organic electrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry. For two more years, he was involved in spectroscopic studies in the Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences at the NRC, Ottawa, Canada. His actual research is focused on the analysis of the electronic structure of conjugated molecules with incidence in the mix valence behavior, diradicaloid properties, excited states interplay, nonlinear optics, among others. He has been a recipient of several national and international awards in chemistry and is the author of more than 130 original publications.
