Dr Mario Gutiérrez received his Bachelor degree in Chemistry (2012) from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM). He obtained his Master (2014) and Ph.D. (2017) diplomas in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Physical Chemistry) from the UCLM under the supervision of Prof. Abderrazzak Douhal.
From 2017 to 2018, Mario was developing a postdoctoral research work in the same group. In January 2019, he joined as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department's Multifunctional Materials & Composites Group led by Professor Jin-Chong Tan.
Mario’s research interests are focused on the application of different steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopic techniques to unravel the emission properties as well as the ultrafast processes happening in photoexcited luminescent Metal-Organic Framework (LMOF) materials.
Mario has also demonstrated in his work that LMOFs have promising abilities to be used in real-world photonic applications such as photocatalysis, fluorescent sensors of nitroaromatic explosive molecules and light emitting diodes. ORCID: 0000–0001–9222–3647
