Since I accomplished a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering in March 2017, I oriented my trajectory to research, especially within the field of renewable energies and resource sustainability. A part of my final master project was carried out in a 5 months experience at Cranfield University (UK), where it was possible to enhance my knowledge about the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), with a particular focus on Calcium Looping applications. Later on, I spent 6 months working in Procter & Gamble company (R&D center, Brussels), working as visiting researcher on the process optimization addressed to polymer films production.
I am currently working at University of Zaragoza as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher in the GreenCarbon project, which is funded by the European Union in the framework of H2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions – Innovative Training Networks (please visit http://greencarbon-etn.eu/ for more details). The main object of my PhD thesis is to give adding value to biomass residues by converting them through slow pyrolysis in carbon-based materials with the best properties for different applications, such as soil amendment and adsorption, among them. In light of that, my project aims to optimize the pyrolysis process in terms of operating conditions.
