Photovoltaic Solar Energy. Telecommunication Engineer. Institute of Solar Energy, Polytechnic University of Madrid. Spain
Telecommunication Engineering degree by the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and PhD on Photovoltaic Solar Energy studies by the Institute of Solar Energy within the same university (IES-UPM) in 2009. MSc on Hydrology and Water Resources Management by the University of Alcalá in 2013. She worked at the Australian National University (ANU, Australia) for three years as postdoctoral researcher, combining both research and lecturing activities. She has also worked at Tianjin University (China) for a year under Chinese public funding. In November 2013 she obtained a "Juan de la Cierva" contract that she developed in IMDEA Water. Nowadays she develops a "Ramón y Cajal" contract at University of Jaén
Her main research lines include the design and development of hybrid solar photovoltaic / thermal / photochemical devices that use the solar spectrum more efficiently, for the production of electricity, purified water and/or heat; and the development of low-cost clean water photovoltaic systems for solar disinfection in developing countries.
She has participated in 20 research projects, being PI in 6 of them. Results include 29 international journal articles, 14 national scientific journal articles, 45 communications to international conferences, 9 invited talks and 1 patent. She is supervising 2 PhD Tesis and has supervised 28 honours and/or master students projects and completed several research stays at ANU (Australia), ZSW (Germany), University of Ferrara (Italy), Anna University (India) and Tianjin University (China).
