Francisco Martin-Martinez is Senior Lecturer in Computational Chemistry, and Research Affiliate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2022, he was selected as Google Research Innovator, because of his work on computational chemistry, and he is working with Google Cloud on chemical reactivity predictions. At Swansea University, he leads a research group focused on nature-inspited materials, looking at nature for inspiration to incorporate natural principles of circularity and efficiency in materials design to address three pillars of our sustainable development: energy, infrastructure, and agriculture. He is involved in projects on organic photovoltacis, self-healing asphalt, biobased electrodes for energy storage, or fit-for-purpose biochars for soil remediation, among others. He also advocates for social justice and socially-directed science and technology, collaborating with Station1, an educational non-profit that fosters social-driven innovation.
