Brief biography: 

She got a Degree in Chemistry at Complutense University of Madrid in 2000 and received her Ph.D. at Rey Juan Carlos University on Chemical and Environmental Engineering in 2006. Her research started in the Department of Physical Chemistry of Complutense University of Madrid studying molecular systems under high pressure. Her PH. D was developed in the Chemical and Environmental Technology Department of Rey Juan Carlos University working on the heavy metal removal from wastewater by adsorption on mesostructured materials. She was visiting researcher in the Department of Chemistry of “Michigan State University” (United States) in 2007, where she continued her research on the development of materials for wastewater treatment. Her research interests are also focused on two other environmental topics: heavy metals removal by photocatalytic processes and CO2 adsorption form power plants steams. Her teaching activity has been developed in Rey Juan Carlos University since 2001, where she has been teaching lectures and seminars as Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering, Industrial Technical Engineering (Chemistry) and Environmental Sciences. She is member of the “Spanish Society of Catalysis” and the “International Adsorption Society”.
