About me

Oscar joined XSolaS group as a postdoctoral researcher in September 2016. His specific research in the group involve the use of operando x-ray techniques to probe the electrocatalytic carbon dioxide conversion into storable fuels. Oscar is originally from Caracas – Venezuela and obtained his bachelor and master degree in Chemistry at Simón Bolívar University. After completing his master, he moved to The Netherlands where he obtained the PhD degree from Leiden University by successfully defending the thesis entitled “Catalysis of the electrochemical water oxidation to oxygen”; the thesis was performed under supervision of Prof. Marc Koper. He stayed one year more in Leiden, as a postdoctoral researcher in a joint project between Leiden University and Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation; the project aimed to use electrochemical and microcopy techniques to study platinum corrosion.

Oscar´s research interests cover the use of spectroscopy (UV-Vis, Raman, Infrared, Mass Spectrometry, X-rays) to study the electrode-electrolyte interface in operando conditions.
