Paolo Pescarmona is currently:

• Assistant Professor in Sustainable Chemical Products and Catalysis at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. His research philosophy involves the rational design and development of catalytic materials for academically and industrially relevant applications with a special focus on green chemistry. His current research activity covers various areas of heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, including CO2 fixation, biomass conversion, catalytic oxidations, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis and the use of high throughput techniques for the synthesis and testing of catalysts in liquid phase and in supercritical CO2.

• Guest professor at the Centre for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis of the University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium.
