Paramaconi Rodriguez is Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at UoB since 2012. Between 2012 and 2017, Dr. Rodriguez held the position of Birmingham Fellow of the School of Chemistry.
He is the group leader for the Advanced Materials and Electrochemistry Research Group.
His research combines standard electrochemical techniques with a variety of spectroscopic techniques, microscopy methods and mass spectrometry to unravel the effect of the surface structure and the role of the interfacial composition on highly relevant oxidation and reduction reactions.
Paramaconi has published more than 60 manuscripts in peer-reviewed scientific journals including high impact factor chemistry journals such as Nature Chemistry, J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem and ACS Catalysis. Paramaconi’s work was also highlighted on the cover of PCCP, Nature Chemistry and ChemPhysChem. He is also the co-inventor of two patents.
His research work has been recognized with several fellowships and awards from the International Society of Electrochemistry, the Science National Foundation of Netherlands (NWO) and recently the Birmingham Fellowship.
He has presented over 80 oral presentations, invited and keynote lectures at universities, research institutes and international conferences.
