    Sánchez Costa

    During his PhD in Physical-Chemistry from the ICMCB-CNRS (Bordeaux) and later throughout three European post-doctorates states at the University of Mainz, Leiden Institute of Chemistry and the University of Barcelona, where he initially held a Juan de la Cierva fellowship, he became an expert in the design, synthesis and characterization of novel molecular-based functional materials. In 2012 he was awarded with an IEF Senior Marie Curie Fellowship at the LCC-CNRS in Toulouse to work on size-reduction effect on switchable coordination chemistry materials called Spin Crossover. Later, he obtained a “Ramon y Cajal” fellowship and joined in 2016 IMDEA Nanoscience as Researcher. He is co-author of more than 62 papers with an h-index=24

    Research Lines

    My research line is centred on the frontier areas of Coordination Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Material Science on the development of new metal-based coordination complexes at the macro- and nanoscopic scale for their technological application in the fields of magnetism, energy storage, catalysis, memory and sensing devices.
