Francisco R Garcia Garcia
Lecturer in Chemical Reaction Engineering
The University of Edinburgh
Dr Francisco R. García-García is a Lecturer in Chemical Reaction Engineering at the School of Engineering at University of Edinburgh. He holds an MSc in Chemistry by the Autónoma University of Madrid and a PhD in Chemical Engineering by the Institute of Catalysis and Petroleum-chemistry, CSIC. He gained his first post-doctoral experience working at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Imperial College London. In this period, he focused in the design and development of catalytic multifunctional reactors for hydrogen production. Afterwards, he worked as a Senior Scientist at Johnson Matthey in the Emissions Control Department. Despite having a very rewarding experience working in industry, he soon realized that he preferred to be involved in more fundamental science and he moved back to the academia. Hence, he joined the UK Catalysis Hub as a research fellow working at the Chemical Engineering Department at Cambridge University, and at the Chemical Engineering Department at Newcastle University. During this time his research focused in chemical looping reforming for syngas and hydrogen production.
