Jose Luis Díaz de Tuesta Triviño graduated in Chemical Engineering at the Superior School of Experimental Science and Technology (ESCET) of the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) in 2009. Immediately he obtained two consecutive grants to collaborate in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group of URJC in the projects: Fuels from urban plastic wastes and Synthesis of paraffin from olefins. In 2011, he worked as a pre-doctoral researcher at The Chemical Engineering Section of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) in the project REMTAVARES 2. Later he developed his Ph.D., granted by the Spanish Government, working on the application of doped carbon-based materials, kinetic modelling and simulation of the catalytic wet peroxide oxidation process. After that, he continued working as a post-doctoral researcher in the project REMTAVARES 3 and in July of 2015 he joined LCM-LSRE through a post-doctoral fellowship from the project: AIProcMat@N2020 - Advanced Industrial Processes and Materials for a Sustainable Northern Region of Portugal 2020 (NORTE-01-0145-FEDER-000006). Currently, he works in the treatment of oily wastewater by advanced oxidation process with amphiphilic carbon-based materials.
