Dr. Agustin Etxeberria
(Associate professor, research group: Polymer science)
Agustin Etxeberria (Professor of Chemical Physics) graduated from the University of the Basque Country in 1987, and obtained the Ph.D. degree in 1993 from the same university focusing on the polymer miscibility and the determination of a reliable polymer-polymer interaction parameter by inverse gas chromatography under the supervision of Prof. J. J. Iruin. In 1992 he obtained a position as assistant professor in the Department of Polymer Science and Technology of the University of the Basque Country. In 2002 he was promoted to associated Professor. Since 2000, he is a member of the Institute of Polymer Materials, Polymat. Since 2004 he is the scientific supervisor of the Polymer Characterization (Transmission Electronic Microscopy) Research Service of the University and since 2009 is the secretary of the Department.
He has published 40 papers and one book chapter. His current research topics are focused on: polymer miscibility, transport properties (solubility, diffusion and permeability) through polymeric materials, modification of biodegradable polymers and characterization of polymers by nuclear magnetic resonance.
