Fernando Rubio-Marcos was born in Madrid, Spain, on June 21, 1980. He received the B.S. degree in applied chemistry in 2004 and Ph.D. degree in applied chemistry in 2009, all of them from Universidad Autonóma de Madrid (Spain). During his thesis, he worked on the synthesis of the lead-free piezoceramics materials and their correlation between the structure and the piezoelectric properties. In 2009, he moved to the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) to investigate on nanomaterials with novel and useful catalytic and optical properties of semiconductors. In 2010, he was a Hired Postdoc at the Laboratory of Science of Ceramic Processes and Surface Treatments (SPCTS) in Limoges University (France) within the group of Dr. Pascal Marchet, where he worked on piezoelectric and ferroelectric compounds particularly for the relationships between crystal structure and properties. His current position is a Hired Postdoct at the Laboratory of Electroceramics in Instituto de Cerámica y Vidrio (CSIC). He is exploring new approaches to understand the structure catalytic relationships of oxide materials at a molecular scale. His work has essentially concentrated on detailed Raman analyses of catalysts obtained by the dry nanodispersion process. Currently, his work encompasses the synthesis, structure, and properties of lead-free piezoceramics materials and the design and construction of new nanomaterials with novel and useful catalytic. Finally, he has published more than 40 technical papers and 2 patents and has given more than 7 invited lectures at international conferences.
