Diogo M.F. Santos was born in Torres Vedras, Portugal, in 1977 and graduated in chemical engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST, Universidade de Lisboa) in 2001. He received a M.Sc. degree in 2006 and a Ph.D. degree in 2009 in electrochemistry. His Ph.D. thesis was devoted to the development of the direct borohydride fuel cell. He did a 3-year post-doc in Chemical Engineering in FEUP (Porto University) and IST studying new electrocatalysts for hydrogen production by alkaline water electrolysis. Afterwards he did a 2-year post-doc in Materials Science & Engineering on low cost electrocatalysts for direct borohydride fuel cells in IST and CICECO (Aveiro University). He is currently working in Center of Physics and Engineering of Advanced Materials (CeFEMA) with an Investigador FCT position (contract no. IF/01084/2014/CP1214/CT0003) under IF2014 Programme. D.M.F. Santos has authored 80 journal papers and over 70 conference proceedings. He has presented over 30 oral communications and 50 posters in international conferences. He is a member of several renowned international societies and serves as a reviewer for many scientific journals. He is the Editor-in-chief of Ciência & Tecnologia dos Materiais (Elsevier). His main research interests are related to electrochemical energy conversion.
