Dr. Sergi Garcia-Segura is currently an Assistant Professor at Arizona State University. He holds a B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of Barcelona and a B.S. degree in Material Science Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. He conducted a M.S. in electrochemistry science and engineering at the University of Alicante and completed his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at the University of Barcelona.
Dr. Garcia-Segura research seeks to develop sustainable water treatment technologies by using nano-enabled photo-assisted and electrochemically driven catalytic processes. He has worked across four continents in multidisciplinary teams, aiming to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. His contributions to the field of environmental electrochemistry (> 125 articles with h= 47) have been recognized by international awards including the Environmental Electrochemistry Prize of the International Society of Electrochemistry, the Green Talent Award from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, and the Elsevier-International Society of Electrochemistry Prize for Applied Electrochemistry. He is an editorial board member of Chemosphere (Elsevier), Catalysts (MDPI), Sensors (MDPI), Water (MDPI), and Editor of Water Science & Technology (IWA).
