Luis Oriol completed his PhD (1990) in Chemistry from the University of Zaragoza with a thesis on liquid crystal polymers under the supervision of Prof. J.L. Serrano. After working in an industrial project on high-performance polymeric fibers he joined the Polythecnical School of Huesca in 1991. In 1993, he spent time at the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven studying processing technologies of liquid crystal photopolymers under the supervision of Prof. D. Broer. He obtained the position of senior lecturer of Organic Chemistry at the Faculty of Science (Univ. of Zaragoza) in 2000. He has (co)authored more than 120 peer-reviewed papers published in international journals and several book chapters on polymers and organic materials. His current research interests lie in functional stimuli-responsive polymers and block copolymers for optical and biomedical applications prepared by controlled polymerization and click chemistry strategies.
