  About me

Guillermo Lasarte Aragonés was born in Madrid in 1984. He started his studies in Chemistry at the University of Córdoba in 2002, switching to Biochemistry in 2005. Soon after finishing his degree, he started the Master´s Degree in Molecular, Cellular and Genetic Biotechnology focusing his Master Thesis in RedOx homeostasis in yeast as model organism.

He started his PhD in Analytical Chemistry in 2010 under the supervision of Prof. Cárdenas and Prof. Lucena thanks to a pre-doctoral grant (FPU). At this stage, he focused his work on the application of CO2 to different microextraction alternatives, including the development of a new modality, called Effervescence-assisted microextraction and the application in this context for the first time of the so-called Switchable Solvent, a promising green alternative. In 2016, he joined the US Naval Research Laboratory (Washington DC) as Postdoc (George Mason University), at the Center for Biomolecular Science and Engineering and the Medintz Lab to expand the application of Analytical Techniques for the purification and characterization of hybrid (bio)nanomaterials and the study newly designed Enzyme-QDs catalytic performance.

He had worked with different chromatographic equipment (HPLC and GC) coupled to different detectors such as UV, DAD, FLD and MS for sample analysis or material characterization and performance evaluation.

Guillermo recently returned to FQM215 group thanks to a Postodctoral Grant (Plan Propio 2018) to continue the application of Switchable Materials in the Microextraction context and Hybrid (bio)nanomaterials.
