Background

Rafa got his undergraduate in Chemistry (2006) and PhD in Physical Chemistry (2011) at Universidad de Salamanca. After that he abandoned the lab (forever?) and did postdoctoral work in quantum biology at Heriot-Watt University with Prof Brendon Lovett (now at St Andrews) and at Harvard University with Prof Aspuru-Guzik (now at U Toronto) in high-througput virtual screening for OLED and battery electrolytes. In 2016 he moved on to industry, to Kyulux North America. There he used Harvard-licensed software to develop commercial OLED materials, before returning to academia in 2018.
