Dr. Jose Ramon Leiza – POLYMAT (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU)

Dr. Jose Ramon Leiza is Professor of Chemical Engineering at the school of Chemistry of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and Director of the Institute of Polymer Materials, POLYMAT. He graduated in Chemistry in 1987 and obtained the Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering in 1991 at UPV/EHU. He spent sabbatical years at Lehigh University (USA) as Visiting Research Associate (1994-95) and Queen’s University (Canada) as a Visiting Professor (2004-05).

His research focuses on the analysis of industrially relevant polymerization processes with especial interest on polymer reaction engineering aspects of polymerization in dispersed media. Thus, he has developed advanced control strategies for tailor making the microstructure and morphology of waterborne polymer dispersions.
