Catalan Institute of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, Barcelona, Spain, EU
Position: Director of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology (ICN2), CSIC Research Professor, Barcelona, Spain
Specialization: Electronic transport in nanoscale devices and electronic processes at surfaces and 2D materials
At the NANOCON´22 conference Prof. Pablo Ordejón will present the opening lecture of the Session A – Nanomaterials for Electronic, Magnetic and Optical Applications: "Towards First-Principles Simulations of Electrochemical Processes at the Nanoscale".
Personal Background and Education:
Pablo Ordejón earned his degree in physics (1987) and his PhD in science (1992) at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA) from 1992 to 1995 and as assistant professor at the Universidad de Oviedo from 1995 to 1999. In 1999, he obtained a research staff position at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC). In 2007 he moved to the former CIN2 (now ICN2) as the leader of the Theory and Simulation Group, where he is currently a CSIC Research Professor. Since July 2012 he has served as Director of the ICN2.
Research activities of Pablo Ordejón are focused on the development of efficient methods for electronic structure calculations in large and complex systems, with contributions to the development of techniques for large-scale atomistic simulations based on first-principles methods such as SIESTA. He has also been involved in the study of the fundamental properties of materials at the atomistic level.
His current interests include the study of electrified electrode-electrolyte interfaces, electronic transport in nanoscale devices and electronic processes at surfaces and 2D materials.
He maintains frequent collaborations with industrial laboratories on the simulation of material processes at the atomic level.
Summary of publication activity:
More than 220 scientific articles, which have received over 32,000 citations; H-index of 61 (according to Web of Science).
