Gastón Adrián Crespo Paravano
Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina), I studied Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) where I received the Licentiate degree (1999-2005). Then I moved to the University Rovira I Virgili at Tarragona (Spain) where I acquired a Master of Nanotechnology and Nanoscience and Doctoral degrees in 2007 and 2010, respectively. Thereafter, I joined Professor Eric Bakker’s group at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) as a Postdoctoral Assistant (2011-2013) and in 2014, I was promoted to a Maître Assistant (comparable to Lecturer) at the same university. In 2017, I was appointed as tenure-track Assistant Professorship at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) located in Stockholm (Sweden), and in early 2020, promoted to Associate Professor (current status). My research interests are in electroanalytical chemistry, membrane transport, development of electrochemical techniques, electrochemilumiscence and optical sensors for environmental and biomedical applications, triggered devices and synchrotron characterization among others. I am co-author of >100 peer reviewed publications, several patents and co-founder of spin-off companies.
