Dr. Bethan Jane Venceslau Davies

Postdoctoral Researcher

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Bethan is working on the electrochemical synthesis of valuable chemicals for creating a sustainable chemical industry. For this, she is using different techniques to analyses and characterize the activity, efficiency, and stability of electrode materials. The information obtained from these results allows us to understand the mechanism and in combination with theoretical simulations performed by collaborating partners, will allow us to optimise the syntheses process. Bethan is also setting up analysis equipment so that we can obtain more information on the activity of the systems under study. More about Bethan here

Dr. Kim Degn Jensen 

Postdoctoral Researcher

Kim Degn Jensen Ph.D. thesis concerned the study of the oxygen electroreduction reaction. His subsequent postdoctoral work covers a broad range of electrocatalytic reactions ranging from oxygen/hydrogen evolution to CO2 reduction. Currently, his research focuses on high area catalyst for oxygen reduction and evolution reactions for fuel cell and electrolysis. More about Kim here

Dr. Paula Sebastián Pascual 

Postdoctoral Researcher

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Paula Sebastián-Pascual graduated in Chemistry at the University of Valencia (Spain) and obtained her Ph.D. in Electrochemistry with Prof. Juan Feliu and Prof. Elvira Gómez from both the University of Alicante and the University of Barcelona in 2018, on: ‘’Surface Sensitive metal electrodeposition in Ionic Liquids’’. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at NanoEsc group. Her research interests focus on the fundamental understanding of electrochemical reactions onto single crystalline surfaces and Electrocatalytic CO2 reduction for the production of high-valuable compounds.

José Alejandro Arminio Ravelo

Ph.D. Student

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Alejandro is working on the development of a greener and more sustainable synthesis of Ir based nanoparticles to the characterization of electrocatalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction in acidic media. He is also interested in the study of different metal oxide materials as electrocatalysts to achieve the partial oxidation of methane to methanol. More about Alejandro here

Anders Westergaard Jensen

Ph.D. Student

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Anders is a third-year Ph.D. student working with oxygen electrocatalysis. He focusses on enhancing the performance and utilization of precious metals for both the oxygen reduction and the oxygen evolution reaction in acid. He is particularly interested in the development of methods for understanding of electrocatalysis under realistic conditions. More about Anders here

Inês Jordão Pereira

Ph.D. Student

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Inês is working on tailoring interfaces towards the electrosynthesis of green chemicals and fuels. She focusses on atomic ensemble bimetallic catalysts to promote new reactions selectively and effectively. Her research interests involve electrocatalysis reactions for valuable chemicals and fuels, electrochemically driven interfacial phenomena, synthesis and characterization of electronically conducting polymers; and energy conversion and storage.
