Rosell Llompart, Joan
He graduated in physics in 1987 from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Before and during his PhD (Yale University, 1994) he worked with Prof. J. Fernández de la Mora on aerodynamic focusing, inertial impaction, electrospray atomization, and differential mobility analysis. As postdoc associate with Prof. John B. Fenn (2002 Nobel laureate in Chemistry) at Virginia Commonwealth University, he did research on electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. In 1996 he joined a startup company in Silicon Valley (Aradigm Corporation) to develop liquid micro-jet technology for inhalation drug delivery. Since joining Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) in 2004 as ICREA Research Professor, his research has focused on electrospray and electrospinning for the manufacturing of nanomaterials. He leads the Droplets, intErfaces, and floWs (DEW) research lab at URV.
