Juan Carlos Hernández Garrido

Position: Treasurer

Center: University of Cádiz

He completed Undergraduate (2002) and Postgraduate Chemistry degrees (2007) at University of Cádiz where he studied the application of advanced transmission electron microscopy of catalysis-related nanomaterials, and awarded with the Outstanding PhD Thesis Award (2008).

He carried out Post-Doctoral Research at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy in the University of Cambridge (UK) with Prof FRS Paul A. Midgley. On returning to Spain (2010), he got a “Juan de la Cierva” Senior Researcher position impelling the incorporation of new electron microscopy techniques, mainly electron tomography, in the Electron Microscopy Services at the University of Cádiz.

Since 2014, he is “Ramón y Cajal” – Senior Researcher in the University of Cádiz.

He has published more than 60 research articles that have been cited over 1000 times and is internationally recognized for his contribution in the development and application of electron tomography for the 3D characterization of heterogeneous catalysts.

He has participated in several R&D&I competitive research projects, funded by both national and international agencies, from which highlights those funded under the 6th and 7th Framework Programme of the European Union.

He is External Consultant for companies within Chemical and Catalysis fields, participating in related transference activities leading to several projects with international companies.

Dr Hernández-Garrido is one of the promoters involved on the foundation of the transmission electron microscopy workshop TEM-UCA. From the 2009 edition, is being offered within the Continuous Teaching Programme of the University of Cádiz with the candidate as Coordinator for the academic and logistic area. This TEMUCA workshop is, nowadays, an international reference as advanced training programme on electron microscopy of nanomaterials.

He is member of several academic editorial boards and scientific societies, European Microscopy Society (EMS), Spanish Materials Society and Spanish Microscopy Society as well as evaluator for national and international scientific and academic agencies.
