Jordi Cirera (Barcelona, 1979) graduated in Chemistry from the University of Barcelona (2002) and received his doctorate with honors from the same university in 2006. His first postdoctoral stage was at Stanford University (2007-2010) working on spectroscopic studies and theoretical modeling of copper metalloproteins, under the supervision of Prof. Edward I Solomon. Later, he moved to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), for a second postdoctoral stage at Prof. Francesco Paesani ́s group, working in the development and implementation of novel methodologies for the computational modeling of spin-crossover processes in Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs). He has been visiting researcher at the Max-Planck Institute für Festkörperforschung (MPG-FKF) in Stuttgart and the Institut de Physique et Chimie des Matériaux (ICPMS) in Strasbourg, under the supervision of Prof. Jens Kortus, developing new methods for the calculation of the zero-field splitting parameters in transition metal compounds. Dr. Cirera has been awarded with several grants, including a PhD grant from the Spanish government, a grant from Generalitat de Catalunya for his first postdoctoral stage, and a Beatriu de Pinos/Marie Curie COFUND fellowship grant. He has been speaker at 32 conferences and invited speaker at 5 seminars in international research centers, and is co-author of 36 publications in peer review journals (h-index 21, total citations 2371, 7 as a corresponding author) and two book chapters.
