A Errachid is a Full Professor Classe Exceptionnelle at the University Claude Bernard-Lyon 1 since the end of 2008. He received his PhD degree from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona in 1997. Between 1997 and 2001 he worked as Junior Research Scientist at the Centro National de microelectronica (CNM). He later joined the Department of Electronics of University of Barcelona and IBEC as Senior Research, where he worked from 2001 till 2008. He has obtained top-level results in the field of silicon-based (bio)chemical sensors using field-effect transistors and micro/nanoelectrode structures. His deep knowledge and understanding of the electronic devices structure as well as operation and interplay between (bio)chemical molecules and electronics, has resulted in development of novel (bio)sensor devices such as, the original nanosensor device based on olfactory proteins developed under SPOT-NOSED project, amongst others). He has an extensive expertise in EU projects coordination and participation, including KardiaTool (H2020-NMBP-X-KET-2017 no. 768686), HEARTEN (H2020-PHC-26-2014, no. 643694), MicroMole (H2020-FCT-2014, no. 653626), DiagCan (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IEF, no. 628363), Sea-on-a-Chip (FP7-OCEAN-2013, no. 614168), SMARTCANCERSENS (ICT FP7, no. 294993), and SensorART (ICT-FP7, no, 248763) projects. To date, he has published more over than 195-refereed Scopus papers and his h-index is 28.
