Fermin Elizalde Iraizoz earned his B. Sc in Chemistry from the University of the Basque Country in July 2016. He did the Master in Chemistry and Polymers in the University of the Basque Country obtaining the specialization in polymers in 2017. During the master thesis he worked on polymer processing and compatibilization of PLA/PCL blends by reactive extrusion. This work was carried out under the supervision of Dr. Nora Aranburu and Dr. Gonzalo Guerrica-echeverria. Then he obtained his PhD in 2022 in the same university, under the supervision of Dr. Haritz Sardon and Dr. Robert Aguirresarobe. His research has been focused on the synthesis and characterization of new polyurethane dynamic networks, to apply in advanced applications such as self-healable polymer electrolytes for Li-ion batteries.


Best poster prize at the 13th International Conference on “Advanced Polymers via Macromolecular Engineering” (APME 2019), held in Stellenbosch (South Africa).



His research is focused on the synthesis of novel covalent adaptable networks (CANs), and their application in synergy with conducting polymers for polymer electrolytes and bioelectronics.
