Mikel Irigoyen received his B. Sc. in Chemistry in 2016 from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), where, under supervision of Prof. Xabier Lopez and Dr, Jon M. Matxain, he carried out a theoretical study on collective excitations in the doped derivatives of Al13- cluster. Right now he is enrolled in the European Master on Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling.

Currently he is also doing his PhD at POLYMAT, Basque Centre for Macromolecular Design and Engineering supervised by Dr. Fernando Ruipérez and Dr. Jon M. Matxain.


His research is focused in the computational study of the reaction mechanism and the role of non-covalent interactions in the different disulfide and diselenide-based materials, with the aim of predicting their self-healing capacity and, thus, propose new compounds for future self-healing materials with improved features.
