Álvaro Gómez López received his Bachelor of Science Degree in chemistry by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), in 2014. During his bachelor project he carried out the polymerization and study of amplification of chirality in oligo-p-phenylenes (OPP).

Besides, he did an internship at the Biology Investigation Center (CIB, CSIC, Spain) and Medical Chemistry Institute (IQM, CSIC, Spain), where he carried out the synthesis and characterization of a family of new chemical structures derived from phthalimide within a whole drug discovery process.


After his bachelor he worked at Balthasar + Co, A.G. (Hochdorf, Switzerland) in the new development of cheese coatings and also as Quality Control technician of incoming raw material.

In 2017 he finished the Master in Science of polymers at the Basque Country University (UPV/EHU), developing new compositions for automotive hoses based on EPDM/PP blends within an internship program in collaboration with Cikatek R&D Innovation Center for his master thesis.

Currently he is doing his PhD at POLYMAT, for the synthesis of adhesives based on non-isocyanate polyurethanes (NIPUs) under the supervision of Dr. Haritz Sardon.
