Gustavo Fernández was born in Ávila (Spain) in 1979. He studied Chemistry at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, where he received his Ph.D. in 2009 under the supervision of Professors Nazario Martín and Luis Sánchez for work on Donor-Acceptor Covalent and Supramolecular systems based on fullerene. His Thesis was recognized with the European Young Chemist Award 2008 and more recently with the Honorable Mention Award associated with the IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists 2010. In March 2009 he joined the research group of Professor Frank Würthner at the University of Würzburg (Germany) where he enjoyed an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral research fellowship until December 2010. Since then he is heading an independent junior research group at the University of Würzburg in the framework of the Sofja Kovalevskaja programme granted from the Humboldt foundation and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. His main research interests concern the study and characterization of supramolecular architectures based on dye aggregates, self-assembly in aqueous media and the investigation of supramolecular multicomponent systems based on p-conjugated scaffolds. In his spare time he enjoys practicing sports (running, football, tennis, table-tennis, squash), eating Spanish and Italian food, traveling, listening music of the ´60s/´70s/´80s and going out for dinner.
