Matías Picchio obtained his BEng. in Chemical Engineering at the National Technological University (Villa María, Argentina).
He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the National University of Litoral, INTEC Institute (Santa Fe, Argentina) in February 2016, working on polymer-protein hybrid nanoparticles for coating applications.
In 2016 he started his postdoctoral studies at the IPQA Institute (National University of Córdoba, Argentina) on films and nanomaterials for biomedical applications. Here, he also investigated printable supramolecular iongels for bioelectronics. In 2019 he got a permanent position as an assistant researcher at the IPQA Institute (CONICET).
Matias joined POLYMAT in June 2021 as a postdoc in the Innovative Polymers Group.



His research interests are focused on hydrogels, iongels, and nanoparticles for biomedical applications.
At POLYMAT, he will work under the supervision of Prof. David Mecerreyes on electroactive soft materials for accelerated skin wound healing.
