Dr. Carlos Montalvo Romero completed his undergraduate studies at the Technological Institute of Orizaba with the best average of the '91–'96 generation and his Master of Science in Chemical Engineering at the Technological Institute of Orizaba with the thesis entitled "Determination of the oxygen transfer coefficient in a rotating bio-disc reactor". He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering Sciences from the Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí with a thesis entitled "Photocatalytic degradation of compounds that contribute to odour in drinking water and wastewater." He is a research professor at the Universidad Autónoma del Carmen, teaching subjects in the Chemical Engineering degree program (Chemical Catalysis, Chemical Kinetics, Thermodynamics, and Physical Chemistry). His administrative tasks include being a member of the Mexican Institute of Chemical Engineers A.C., the Mexican Academy of Catalysis, and the Brazilian Academy of Chemical Engineering, as well as a member of the editorial committee of the university, and the Head of the Chemical Kinetics and Photocatalysis Laboratory. He has a national patent registered at the IMPI (MX/A/2008/011793; G21C17/035) and another in process (MX/A/2018/004811), and is also a member of the Academic Body Consolidated by PROMEP of Chemical Sciences with the line of generation and application of knowledge (LGAC) of materials and processes for the environment, and belongs to the National System of Researchers Level I. He is currently directing a master's thesis in reactor design and catalyst synthesis (TiO2-Au, TiO2-Fe, TiO2-Ag, TiO2-Pt, ZnO2-Au, ZnO-Pt, ZnO-Ge) to obtain hydrogen, ultrasound treatments, and treatments of pollutants. He is also a member of Gulf base and has authored seven book chapters and edited a book with more than 485 citations since 2018.
