Bio and Research Interests:
David Ventura was born and raised in Castellón (Spain). He obtained his B.S. degree in chemistry in 2014 from the Universitat Jaume I. Now he is an undergraduate student under the supervision of J. A. Mata. His research interests focus on development of new catalytically activeorganometallic complexes that allow immobilisation onto graphene surfaces and the study of catalytic applications in de-hydrogenation processes.
