Dr. Pau Farràs Costa has been awarded the "Outstanding Award for the PhD in Chemistry" from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona for the period 2008/2009, assessing the quality and quantity of publications and conference contributions based on original results of the thesis. He performed his PhD thesis entitled "Functionalització de l’anio cobalto-bis(dicarballur) per a nous materials” at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) under the supervision of Prof. Francesc Teixidor. As a result of this thesis, 14 manuscripts have been published in high impact factor journals: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.; JACS, Chem. Eur. J.; Inorg. Chem., among others, as well as national (13) and international (12) conferences. Besides, it is important to note the recent publication of a Chem. Soc. Rev. Dr. Pau Farràs obtained his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 2003 and his PhD in Chemistry at the Inorganic Materials & Catalysis Laboratory in ICMAB–CSIC (Spain) in 2009. His work was focused on the synthesis and characterization of metallacarboranes based on the cobaltabisdicarbollide anion. He then joined the group of Prof. Antoni Llobet as a postdoctoral fellow at ICIQ (Spain) and his current work is based on the development of photoelectrochemical devices for the production of hydrogen using visible light
