Ouissam El Bakouri, new Beatriu de Pinós fellow at IQCC

Dr. El Bakouri has recently become a new member of the Institute of Computational Chemistry and Catalysis (IQCC) as a Beatriu de Pinós Postdoctoral Fellow. Dr. El Bakouri was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Prof. Henrik Ottosson’s group in Uppsala University, Sweden. During his Postdoc, Dr. El Bakouri focused on the role of excited-state (anti)aromaticity in energy related applications. Dr. El Bakouri received his PhD in Chemistry from  IQCC/University of Girona in November 2017. During his PhD, he worked with Prof. Miquel Solà, Dr. Jordi Poater and Dr. Ferran Feixas on electronic structure, chemical bonding, and electronic delocalization of organic and inorganic systems with three-dimensional or excited state aromaticity.
At this moment, he holds a Beatriu de Pinós Postdoctoral Fellow position in Dr. Lluís Blancafort’s group of the IQCC. He is looking into excited-state (anti)aromaticity effects in photocatalysis. He started in December 2021 and he will be in the IQCC until, al least, November 2024.
Welcome back Ouissam and good luck!
