Miguel A. Camblor

Institute of Materials Science of Madrid, ICMM-CSIC, Spain


Miguel A. Camblor got his B.S. degree in chemistry (inorganic) from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 1985 and his Ph.D. degree in 1992 from the same university, for work done under the supervision of Professor J. Pérez-Pariente at the Institute of Catalysis and Petroleochemistry and Institute of Chemical Technology (ITQ), both of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). He has been a Postdoctoral Fulbright Fellow and Visiting Associate in chemical engineering at the CalTech (1992–1994), working with Professor Mark E. Davis. After working for around 6 years as a Tenured Scientist at the ITQ-CSIC, he moved to industry as the Head of the Research and Development Department of Industrias Químicas del Ebro (2000–2002). He then joined the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) as a Research Scientist, being subsequently promoted to full professorship (Research Professor) in 2009. His main scientific interest is in the synthesis of microporous materials, with a focus on structure-direction issues and on the physicochemical and structural characterization and applications of zeolites. He is a coauthor of around 100 papers in international scholarly journals, with an average of well over 40 citations per paper, and coinventor of over 15 international and national patents. Additionally, he plays tenor sax in Within Experimental Error, the funk-jazz-blues band of ICMM-CSIC, and in Schizzofunk, the funk, rock and rejolguete band of Madrizz.
