Carlos Guerrero-Sanchez studied chemical engineering in Mexico and got a B.S. degree (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mecico, 1999) and an M.S. degree (Instituto Tecnologico de Celaya, 2001). Thereafter, he worked for two years at the Combinatorial Chemistry Laboratory of the Research and Development Centre of KUO (former DESC, a major Mexican corporation). In 2007, he obtained a Ph.D. degree in combinatorial materials research and polymer science under the supervision of Professor Ulrich Schubert at the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. His Ph.D. thesis was awarded by the Dutch Polymer Institute in 2008. From 2007 to 2009, as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the aforementioned university, he founded Ioniqa Technologies, a start-up company focused on the development of ionic liquids-based smart materials. He currently works for the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO, in Australia) involved in the high-throughput experimentation programme of the Materials Science and Engineering Division. His current research focus includes the investigation of reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerizations and the synthesis and application of advanced polymeric materials using high-throughput experimentation techniques. He has coauthored over 30 scientific publications including patent applications.
