Dr. Roger Bofill obtained the degree of Chemistry at the UAB in 1996, and completed his PhD in 2001 on the metal binding abilities of metallothioneins (MTs). He then performed a brief stay in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Sussex (UK), working on the enzymatic properties of xanthine dehydrogenase. Afterwards, he joined Prof. M.S. Searle group at the Centre for Biomolecular Sciences, University of Nottingham (UK), and worked until June 2004 on thefoldingkinetics and thermodynamics of ubiquitin-related proteins. He rejoined the UAB as a lecturer and researcher in Dr. Capdevila’s team on MTs, obtaining his tenure in 2009. In 2012 he joined the Selective Oxidation Catalysis Group (SelOxCat), focusedon the study of selective catalytic oxidative processes in homogeneous and heterogeneous (mainly metallic nanoparticles) media.His main research interests are the use of catalysts for emulating crucial biochemical processes such as CO2 fixation or dioxygen formation from water, in view of obtaining a source of sustainable energy and fighting against global warming.
