Arantxa Eceiza is Full Professor of Chemical Engineering in Chemical and Environmental Engineering Department and head of the ‘Materials + Technologies’ Research Group (GMT) of the Basque Country University (UPV/EHU). Her research activities focus on the valorization of biomass derived products, synthesis of biobased polymers, biopolymers and their (nano)composites with different nanoentities, such as nanocellulose, chitin nanocrystals, carbon nanostructures, among others, using different synthesis routes and several advanced processing technologies, in order to develop new materials with improved properties, as well as functional and smart materials. Prof. Eceiza has published more than 180 articles in journals indexed in the JCR and several book chapters, with more than 3500 citations and a h index of 34. She has supervised 15 PhDs, 8 of them with European Mention and 5 awarded with the Extraordinary Doctorate by the UPV/EHU. Moreover, she is the Responsible of the Renewable Materials Engineering PhD Program of the UPV/EHU, recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Education as a highly qualified Ph.D. program.
