Graduated as Chemical Engineer in 2014 from the University of Malaga, holder of an MSc Degree in Chemical Engineering in 2015 from the University of the Basque Country and the University of Cantabria and Doctor in Chemical Engineering from the University of the Basque Country.
In 2013, I was awarded with a collaborative grant in the Department of Chemical Engineering of the University of Malaga under the supervision of Prof. José Rodríguez-Mirasol. In this period, I worked on activated carbon-based materials with different configurations for electrochemical applications (supercapacitors and alcohol electro-oxidation).
In October 2015, I was hired as researcher at the Department of Chemical Engineering of the University of the Basque Country. In collaboration with the University of Malaga, we studied the use of bifunctional catalysts supported on activated carbons for hydroprocessing pyrolysis oils form tires and biomass. In August 2016, I obtained a predoctoral grant under the supervision of Prof. Javier Bilbao. My PhD research was focused on the production of olefins through the conversion of paraffins (butane and pentane) and oxygenates (dimethyl ether and methanol).
In April 2018, I made a research stay in the Institute of Tecnologia Quimica of Valencia under the supervision of Prof. Avelino Corma. In April 2019, I also made a 3-month research stay in the Centre for Materials and Nanoscience (SMN) at the University of Oslo under the supervision of Prof. Unni Olsbye. And in September 2019, I made a 3-month research stay at KAUST Catalysis Center under the supervision of Prof. Jorge Gascon.
