ICREA Research Professor
Roger Guimerà (Barcelona, 1976) graduated in Physics at Universitat de Barcelona in 1998, and obtained a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Universitat Rovira i Virgili in 2003. He then moved to Northwestern University, where he worked as a postdoctoral fellow and, later, as a Fulbright Scholar. In 2008 he became a Research Assistant Professor at Northwestern's department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, before accepting his current position at ICREA.
