Antton Ibarbia earned his Bachellor's Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in July 2017, with a final research project on MnOx/CeO2 as an alternative catalyst for the abatement of hazardous gases from waste treatment plants.
In June 2019, he obtained his Master's Degree in Nanotechnology from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) of Stockholm, after presenting his final research project on graphene quantum dots as photocatalysts for organic dye degradation, carried out at CIDETEC (Donostia).


Antton has engaged in various research projects during internships in different institutions. He has worked on the development of nanoparticle-functionalized inks for the impression of pressure and strain microsensors (BCMaterials, 2017), on the synthesis of organic hole conductors for perovskite solar cells (POLYMAT, 2017) and on designed proteins as scaffolds for the synthesis of iron oxide nanoparticles and their application as MRI contrast agents (CIC biomaGUNE, 2018).
His current PhD, in collaboration with CIDETEC, is focused on the development of PU-based coatings with self-healing and omniphobic capabilities, under the supervision of Dr. Haritz Sardon and Dr. Jesús Palenzuela.
