Antoni (Toni) Forner-Cuenca was born in Alicante, Spain on December 29th, 1989.  He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Alicante where he graduated class valedictorian. After briefly working in the chemical industry (at SABIC), Toni decided to return to academia, and in April 2013, started his PhD studies at ETH Zurich (Switzerland) where he worked in the Paul Scherrer Institute to develop advanced materials for fuel cells. Toni completed his PhD at the end of 2016 and received the ETH Medal, an award recognizing outstanding doctoral theses.

 

In 2017, Toni joined the Brushett Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Swiss National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow. Over two years, Toni worked on developing next-generation redox flow batteries and advanced porous electrodes. Since February 2019, Toni is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Membrane Materials & Processes, at Eindhoven University of Technology.
