Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group

Chemical Engineer from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) in 2013, and a Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering from the UCLM in 2014. In 2018, she received her PhD in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from the UCLM. Expert in the field of remediation of soils polluted with organochlorinated compounds through electrochemical technologies. She began her research career with the Final Project in the framework of the wastewater with persistent organic compounds treatment by direct electrolysis in the Electrochemical and Environmental Engineering Laboratory (E3L), within the Chemical Engineering Department of the UCLM. She continued developing her Master's Thesis in acid refinery wastewater treatment by using electrochemical techniques within a joint project of UCLM with Repsol S.A. In 2014, she started her Doctoral Thesis entitled "Electro-bioremediation of pesticide polluted soils", applying electro-bioremediation, one of the most innovative and cutting-edge technologies in the field of polluted soils research. During this period, she made a predoctoral stay at the Research Center Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung - UFZ in Leipzig, Germany. In 2018, she finished her Doctoral Thesis, obtaining the highest grade of Outstanding Cum Laude. She has participated in several national R & D projects. In February 2019, she joined the URJC, where she currently works in the development and optimization of photo-bioelectrochemical systems for obtaining bioproducts and capturing CO2 through wastewater.
