Alba García Sánchez graduated with a bachelor´s degree in Chemistry from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2014. Her Final Degree Proyect was “Development of biodegradable implants based on magnesium alloys” developed in Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering Department at UCM in collaboration with CENIM (CSIC). She owns a master degree in Applied Chemistry from Autónoma University of Madrid in 2015, with a Final Master Proyect in “Synthesis, processing and characterization of hybrids organic-inorganics electrolytes for direct alcohol fuel cells” developed in the Institute of Cerámica y Vidrio (ICV-CSIC). She has made practices in expression, purification and characterization of proteins in Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas (CIB-CSIC). Since may 2016 she is predoctoral researcher under HYMAP project.
Carmen García López graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) in 2015. Her thesis dealt with “Design and synthesis of new fluorophores (BODIPY) for different photonic applications,” developed within the Organic Chemistry I Department at UCM. In 2016, she got her master’s degree in Organic Chemistry at UCM and her final master’s thesis related to “The study of the regioselectivity of the Negishi reaction in haloBODIPYs.” A portion of the results were recently published in JOC (DOI: 10.1021/acs.joc.6b00350).In the professional realm, she interned at Laboratorio Control analyzing the control of the quality of water.Since June 2016, she is working on her doctoral degree while working with the Photoactivated Processes Unit at IMDEA Energy under HYMAP project.
Elena Alfonso González graduated in Chemistry from the Complutense University of Madrid in 2014. Her Bachelor thesis was “Search of high-temperature superconductors based on M-1212 structure with Ru in the charge reservoir”. She got a Master of Science degree in Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry from Lille and Leipzig Universities in 2016, with a Master thesis entitled “Z-scheme based photocatalytic water splitting by modification of TiO2 and Fe2O3 semiconductors with Pt and RuOx promotors”. In the professional field, she did an internship in IMDEA Energy Institute in 2015 about the characterization by DRIFTS in situ of catalysts based on TiO2 for the photorredution of CO2. She also had an internship in the CSIC Institute of Ceramics and Glass in 2013 concerning the synthesis and characterisation of thermoelectric materials. Since February 2017 she is a predoctoral researcher in the Photoactivated Processes Unit.
