I have a Chemical Engineering degree from Colombia and a M.Sc. in Sustainable Energy Technology from TU Delft. These have granted me the analytical skills and problem solving mindset necessary in Research and Engineering. I am driven by the idea of contributing to science by researching on Renewable Energies and their applications in chemical processes that can be eventually used to improve society’s quality of life.
My interests and training include:
• Photovoltaics (PV) profile
• Energy Storage
• Material Science
• Heterogeneous Catalysis
• Environmental impact/Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Currently, my work comprises the study of charge transfer in PEM fuel cells, particularly at the electrode/membrane interfaces. Theoretical and experimental work are carried out within this framework in order to describe the transport of species and properties of the materials involved in the system. Experimentation to characterize the interfaces of the commercial construction (Nafion/platinum) and in-house produced electrodes and membranes are to follow.
