A. J. Paleo holds a PhD at the University of A Coruña (Spain) with the thesis titled “A study of the physical properties of carbon nanofiber reinforced polypropylene composites”, which has broadened his expertise in the field of conductive polymer composites (CPCs). Currently, he is performing research towards the development of advanced textile-based components for energy storage and harvesting applications. This research line includes the production of low-cost electrodes from functional textiles for supercapacitors, and the investigation of commercial carbon nanofibers as active components for the production of wearable and textile-based thermoelectric generators.
