Jose-Luis Valverde went on to get his Ph.D. from Complutense University of Madrid, Spain in 1991.

His research activities developed as a Full Professor of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) have been focused on different subjects related to the conventional catalysis; the application of the electrochemical promotion of catalysis (EPOC) and electrocatalysis at high and low temperatures; the synthesis and uses of carbon nanostructures (carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, carbon nanospheres and graphene) as catalysts and as a part of polymer-based composites; the encapsulation of PCMs and catalysts; the pyrolysis, combustion and gasification of biomass; and the simulation and modelling of chemical processes. He authored and co-authored several book chapters, 6 patents and more than 235 research papers.

He has been the principal investigator of about 65 research projects with European (4), National and Regional institutions, private companies and others with a total funding of more than 10 million euros. He has also supervised 16 PhD students. He coordinates Project NANOLEAP funded by the European Commission (H2020- NMP-PILOTS-2014).
