Dr René Herrera Díaz is a researcher from the University of the Basque Country in San Sebastian, Spain. He works in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Department in the Biorefinery Processes research group there.
René successfully applied for an individual fellowship that was granted from the Basque Government to work abroad for a period of two years, in order to boost his research career.
“I chose the InnoRenew CoE because of its potential as a research institute and also because of the people who are working there in my areas of interest,” said René.
His work at the InnoRenew CoE will be developed with the Wood Modification group, which is led by Dr Anna Sandak. The title of his project is “Multi-functionalization of wood to improve durability and for novel applications”.
The InnoRenew CoE looks forward to hosting René for the next two years.
