Luis M. Frutos
Luis M. Frutos was born in Salamanca, Spain in 1976. He received the Chemistry degree in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree in chemistry in 2004 under the supervision of Professor Castaño, working on the theoretical study of photochemical and photophysical properties of unsaturated hydrocarbons. The thesis was awarded with the Ph.D. degree prize in chemistry of the University of Alcalá. Frutos moved as Postdoctoral Researcher to Siena, Italy with Professor Olivucci and then, in 2006 he spent two years in the group of Professor Domcke in the Technical University of Munich, Germany. He got a research position in 2008, “Ramón y Cajal” contract, in Spain, where he is now developing his research mainly focused on the study of photochemical and photophysical processes in chemical and biological systems, especially in the study of photoinduced energy, electron and proton transfer. He is coauthor of 40 scientific publications like PNAS, JACS, JPC, and JCP and invited speaker in different international meetings. Frutos has been awarded the QSCP (Quantum Systems in Chemistry and Physics) Promising Scientist Prize of CMOA (Centre de Mécanique Ondulatoire Appliquée) in 2006 , the "Burgen Scholarships" given by the Academia Europaea “in recognition of excellent academic achievements" in 2007, and the Price for Young Researchers in Experimental Sciences of the University of Alcalá in the 2010 edition.
