Erlantz Lizundia


Since 2016 he is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao, University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). He received his PhD in Advanced Materials Engineering in 2011 at the UPV/EHU. He joined the University of the British Columbia (Canada) and ETH Zurich (Switzerland) in 2016 and 2018 as a visiting scientist. Through bioeconomy concepts, his research is devoted to the use of renewable biological resources from land and sea (such as crops, forests, fish, animals and micro-organisms) to develop multifunctional nanohybrids for energy storage, catalytic, optical and environmental remediation applications. Erlantz also works on the ecodesign of novel materials and technologies, including energy storage and polymer upcycling, through life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology.
