Mikel Irigoyen received his B. Sc. in Chemistry in 2016 from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), where, under supervision of Prof. Xabier Lopez and Dr, Jon M. Matxain, he carried out a theoretical study on collective excitations in the doped derivatives of Al13- cluster. Right now he is enrolled in the European Master on Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling.

Currently he is also doing his PhD at UPV/EHU supervised by Dr. Jon M. Matxain and Dr. Fernando Ruipérez.

Research

His research is focused in the computational study of the reaction mechanism and the role of non-covalent interactions in the different disulfide and diselenide-based materials, with the aim of predicting their self-healing capacity and, thus, propose new compounds for future self-healing materials with improved features.
