Paramaconi Rodriguez is Birmingham Fellow of the School of Chemistry since Nov 2012.
Dr. Rodriguez reserach combine standard electrochemical techniques with a variety of spectroscopic techniques, with microscopy methods and with mass spectrometry in order to unravel the effect of the surface structure of catalysts and the role of the interface composition on highly relevant oxidation and reduction reactions.
Paramaconi has published more than 50 manuscripts in peer-reviewed scientific journals including high impact factor chemistry journals as Nature Chemistry, J. Am.Chem. Soc. and Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. In addition two patents have being filed. Several of these papers have been seminal works, pushing beyond the state-of-the art and establishing new methods and fundamental knowledge. Paramaconi’s work has being highlighted on the cover of the PCCP, Nature Chemistry and ChemPhysChem journals.
His research work has being also recognized with several fellowships and awards from the International Society of Electrochemistry, the Science National foundation of Netherlands (NWO) and recently the Birmingham Fellowship.
Presented over 60 oral presentations, invited and keynote lectures at universities, research institutes and international conferences.
