Camilo A Mesa graduated in Chemistry from National University of Colombia (Colombia) in 2008 and obtained a joint M. Sc. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) and the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2011 after completing his master project on the effect of catalyst overlayers on hematite photoanodes for water splitting at Imperial College London under James Durrant supervision.

In 2019 Camilo completed his PhD on spectroelectrochemical studies of oxidation reactions on hematite photoanodes under the supervision of James Durrant. He currently holds a Research Associate position working on the spectroscopy and catalysis of organic substrates in photocatalytic and electrocatalytic materials.
