After completing my studies in Chemical and Industrial Engineering with respective mentions of Extraordinary End of Degree Prizes, I was awarded a Graduate Research Assistantship at the Technical University of Cartagena to work on the optimization of wastewater treatment processes. In 2013 I received a University Faculty Training Grant (FPU) for the completion of my Doctoral Thesis at this University, with the aim of improving the efficiency of microbial fuel cell technology using ionic liquids and nanomaterials. During this time, I had the opportunity to do two stays at the Bristol Bio-Energy Center (University of the West of England) for 6 months in total. In 2016 I obtained the title of International Doctor with a qualification of Cum Laude, receiving the mention of Extraordinary Doctorate Award. In 2017 I continued my research career at the University of Murcia as a contracted researcher to work on fuel cell technology and at the University of Cantabria. In 2017 I was awarded the Grant 'Juan de la Cierva-Formación' at the University of Cantabria (Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering), with the opportunity to carry out a 4-month 'José Castillejo' research stay at the University of Hull (UK). During this period, I took part as a researcher in 2 European projects (PEMFC-SUDOE and HYLANTIC) for the improvement of hydrogen fuel cell technology through the development of polymeric ionic liquid membranes. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Cartagena. My research lines are related to the development of bioelectrochemical technologies, the research of green solvents, and the application of ionic liquids for the development of new membrane materials. The research results achieved so far have been published in over 50 articles in indexed journals (JCR, h-index: 19), 12 book chapters published in national and international publishers, and over 40 conference communications, mostly international. Several of these works have been prepared in collaboration with international researchers. I am a regular reviewer of high-impact journals in the field of Chemical Engineering indexed in the ISI-JCR database. Within the framework of research projects, I have developed technology transfer activities in collaboration with national companies such as ACCIONA in the fields of water and energy management.
