Guillermo Quijano
Guillermo holds an MSc degree in Biotechnology from Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana (Mexico) and a PhD in Biotechnology and Bioengineering from Cinvestav, the center for advanced studies of the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico. Guillermo performed postdoctoral research stays in the School of Chemistry of Rennes (ENSCR) and the Ecole des mines d'Alès (EMA) in France. From 2011 to 2016, Guillermo performed his lecturing and research activity in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology of the University of Valladolid (Spain). Guillermo is currently a senior researcher at the Engineering Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). His research focuses on (i) the integral management of gas, liquid and solid pollutants by means of biotechnologies and (ii) the recovery of bioenergy and other added-value products from waste streamsFor more details on the Guillermo's Scientific Quality Indicators check:
