Electrochemical capacitors and supercapacitors that store energy using ion adsorption (electrochemical double layer capacitors) or fast faradaic surface reactions (pseudocapacitors). Within this framework, the main research of our group is related to the development of microporous materials with a high surface area of activated carbon, which could potentially increase the energy density of the system while maintaining the power and reducing the cost. Other lines of research include the development of new nanostructured pseudocapacitive materials (oxides, nitrides and polymers) and low dimensional nanocarbons (carbon nanotubes and graphene).

Daniel Carriazo obtained his degree in chemistry in 2003 from the University of Salamanca including a course abroad at the University of Bristol (UK) where he performed his bachelor thesis in the Centre for the Organized Matter Chemistry. In 2008 he obtained his PhD from the University of Salamanca working at the Inorganic Chemistry department on the immobilization of polyoxometalates within layered double hydroxides and/or porous oxides for catalytic applications under the supervision of Prof. V. Rives and Prof. C. Martín.

In 2009 he joined to the Bioinspired Materials group at the ICMM-CSIC leaded by Dr. Francisco del Monte as a "Juan de la Cierva" postdoctoral fellow.  In 2011 he was visiting fellow in the Multifunctional Materials group headed by Prof. Markus Niederberger at the ETH-Zürich (Switzerland). In 2012 returned to the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (CSIC) with a "JAE-Doc" postdoctoral fellowship.

Since February 2014 he is an Ikerbasque Research Fellow at the CIC EnergiGUNE. His current scientific interest is focused on the synthesis of carbons with tailored porosity and carbonaceous-metal oxide composite materials with potential application as electrodes for energy storage devices.
