Short CV

J. L. Alonso-Gómez was born in Vigo, Spain in 1977. He obtained a B.S. degree in 2001 from the University of Vigo and a Ph.D. degree in 2006 from the same university.After carrying out postdoctoral work with F. Diederich at ETH Zurich, he moved to Columbia University, New York, to work with N. Berova as an invited scientist until late 2009.In 2010 he got an Isidro Parga Pondal position at the University of Vigo where since 2014 he is a Ramón y Cajal researcher. His focus is on chirality, aiming at controlling the chiroptical responses of systems as independent entities and as collective ordered architectures to enable the design of functional materials, such as logic gates, catalysts, and sensors. In the last years he got familiar with the use of collectively chiral nanoparticles with strong chiroptical responses. Currently he is exploring the self-assembly of smart chiral frameworks on surfaces for chiroptical sensing.
