short CV

Manuel Souto Salom (Valência, 1988) é Professor Auxiliar no Departamento de Química da Universidade de Aveiro e no CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials. Possui uma dupla licenciatura em Química e Engenharia Química da Universidade de Valência (Espanha) e da École de Chimie, Polymères et Matériaux (ECPM) de Estrasburgo (França), respectivamente, fazendo um estágio de investigação em PLAPIQUI (Argentina). Obteve também um Mestrado em Química Molecular e Supramolecular pela Universidade de Estrasburgo realizando a sua tese de mestrado no Instituto Superior Técnico (IST, Lisboa). Em 2016, obteve o seu doutoramento em Ciência dos Materiais (tese tripla premiada) no Instituto de Ciência dos Materiais de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) sob a supervisão do Prof. J. Veciana desenvolvendo novos materiais moleculares baseados em radicais orgânicos para diferentes aplicações em electrónica (interruptores moleculares, condutores e rectificadores) conduzindo duas estadias de investigação na Universidade Nacional de Singapura (NUS, grupo Prof. C. Nijhuis) e na Universidade de Antuérpia. Em 2017, começou a trabalhar como investigador pós-doutorando (bolsa Juan de la Cierva) no grupo de Dr. G. Mínguez e Prof. E. Coronado no Instituto de Ciência Molecular (ICMol-Universidad de Valencia) desenhando e sintetizando novas Estruturas Metalo-Orgânicas (MOFs). O seu principal interesse de investigação actual é a concepção e síntese de novas estruturas electroactivas porosas funcionais (MOFs & COFs) baseadas em blocos de construção redox-activos para diferentes aplicações em electrónica. É o primeiro autor e/ou autor correspondente em 18 dos 31 artigos científicos em revistas de alto impacto e contribuiu para cerca de 20 conferências internacionais/nacionais.
