Prof. Jordi Fraxedas

Group Leader at Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), CSIC and The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology, Spain

Prof Jordi Fraxedas (Tarragona, 1962) graduated in Physics from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 1985 and obtained his PhD (Dr rer. nat.) in 1990 from the University of Stuttgart (Germany). His thesis work was performed at the Max Planck Institut für Festkörperforschung and at the Berliner Speicherring für Synchrotronstrahlung (BESSY), under the supervision of Prof M. Cardona.
After a post-doctoral position at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble (France) and an Established Researcher position at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva (Switzerland), he joined the Solid State Research Institute of Barcelona (ICMAB) of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) in 1995 and worked as a Chercheur associé at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in 2002.

His research activity is focused on interfacial phenomena and surface science. He has co-authored more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles and published the books entitled Molecular Organic Materials: From Molecules to Crystalline Solids (Cambridge University Press, 2006) and Water at Interfaces: A Molecular Approach (Taylor and Francis CRC (2014)).
