Javier Garcia-Martinez is the Director of the Molecular Nanotechnology Lab
at the University of Alicante (Spain) and co-founder of Rive Technology, Inc.,
an MIT spin-off commercializing advanced nanocatalysts for clean energy applications
developed by Javier during his postdoctoral research. Previously, he worked
at the California Institute of Technology (CalTech) and UC Berkeley.
Javier has published widely, being his last book "Nanotechnology for
the Energy Challenge", wiley-VCH(2010). He is also inventor of 12 patents,
most of them licensed. Javier has received the TR 35 Award from MIT Technology
Review magazine in 2007 and the Europa Medal, awarded annually to the outstanding
European chemist under the age of 35.
In 2009, the World Economic Forum recognized him as one of the Young Global
Leaders. Since 2008, Javier is titular member of the Inorganic Chemistry Division
of IUPAC. His research interests include a broad range of nanomaterials, mesoporous
solids, zeolites, and catalysis, especially for energy-related applications.
