Biography

My training as a pre-doctoral researcher, the experience as post-doctoral researcher and my participation in several research projects have consolidated my professional expertise in green electrochemical engineering, focused in  the fields of metals resource recovery and wastewater treatment. I received my bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering in 2009, and my master's degree in Hydraulic Engineering and Environment (2011) from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). I was awarded for the best academic track record in Chemical Engineering among all graduates in the academic year 2008/2009. From 2007 to 2010 I enjoyed several collaboration scholarships funded by the UPV, one of which was obtained thanks to my degree's award. From 2010 to 2014, I obtained a predoctoral grant (VALI+D program) funded by the Generalitat Valenciana (GV). During my PhD I had the opportunity to perform several international collaboration with the Universidade do Rio Grande do Sul (Brasil) in the inter-university Spanish-Brasilian collaboration program, and national level with the Universidad de Cantabria (UC), which served to acquire scientific skills necessary for my thesis project and to build links with other laboratories for future collaborations. On July 2014, I defended my PhD entitled "Study of the zinc recovery from spent pickling baths (SPBs) coming from the hot dip galvanizing industries using electrochemical technologies", at the UPV, obtaining my doctorate with the CUM LAUDE distinction.

Afterwards, I was hired as a post-doctoral researcher (PDR) in the Jaume I University (2015), where I worked together with a researcher from the Sharif U. of Tech. in the electrochemical characterization of Perovskites solar cells. From 2015 to 2017, I was a PDR at the UPV of the VALI+D program, a competitive call funded by the GV. During the first year of this PD grant I worked on the chlorine reduction during zinc electrodeposition at the UPV and, at the second year, I did a one year stay at the UC, where I acquired new scientific skills on the electro-oxidation of per-fluorinated compounds. After, I was hired by the UC thanks to the GRADISAL project, where I have carried out the set-up of the reverse electrodialysis stack and I learnt about the blue energy technology. Then, I was hired by the UPV in the LIFE-2-ACID project which main aim is the technology transference  by the construction of a reactor that combine the membrane technology together with an electrochemical reactor. At 2021 I got an associate lecturer position in the chemical engineering department of the U. de València (UV), where I expect to improve my teaching experience and to consolidate my research activity.

I have actively participated in 9 regional, national and EU R&D projects obtained in competitive calls and two contracts with private entities. During my career I have published 15 documents in peer-reviewed journals, 11 of them located in the 1st Q of JCR, 1 educational research work and 1 conference paper. Amongst them, there are 2 documents in collaboration with international researchers, Angela Kasper and Sara Rahimnejad. Besides. On  the other hand, I have participated in 24 international and national congresses and I have, recently, published a book chapter with the Excellence researche net E3TECH. Regarding higher education academic activity, I have teached at undergraduate and master levels, with 2 final year projects and 4 master thesis co-directed, one of them with an international Student from the university of Strathclyde (Jennifer Bain). Finally, I have taken part in 4 science dissemination events prepared for all ages.
