Juan Luis Gómez Urbano started his Chemistry bachelor’s degree in 2013 at the University of Córdoba (UCO). He defended his bacherlor’s thesis titled “Conversion of cigarette butts onto activated carbons”.
After finishing his degree in 2017, he performed a summer internship at CIC energiGUNE focused on the development of new graphene-based materials for Lithium-Sulfur batteries. After that he performed his master studies in the university of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), which finished in 2018. This same year he was granted with a FPU scholarship from the Spanish government to start his PhD at CIC energiGUNE. He is currently finishing his PhD, which is focused on the development of new graphene-based materials for different energy storage systems, such as, lithium-sulfur batteries, electric double layer capacitors, sodium-oxygen batteries or lithium-ion capacitors.
