Undergraduate School: B.Sc. in Chemistry at the National and Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)
Graduate School: M.Sc. in Green and Sustainable Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Project: Electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution and selective oxidation of methane to methanol
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 materials as electrocatalysts to achieve the partial oxidation of methane to methanol.

Undergraduate School: B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering at Aarhus University, Denmark
Graduate School: M.Sc. in Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Project: Development and characterization of oxygen reduction electrocatalysts for fuel-cell applications
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 acidic media. He is particularly interested in the development of methods for understanding of electrocatalysis under realistic conditions.
Before joining the Escudero-Escribano group and the V-sustain project, he obtained a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering at Aarhus University followed by an M.Sc. degree in Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen under the supervision of Matthias Arenz.

Project title: Selective electrosynthesis of green chemicals and fuels
Inês is working on tailoring interfaces towards the electrosynthesis of green chemicals and fuels. She focusses on atomic ensemble control of bimetallic catalysts to promote both selectivity and efficiency of new reactions. Before coming to the University of Copenhagen, she was working as a student collaborator at the Interfacial Electrochemistry Group of the Center of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Faculty of Science of the University of Lisbon, where she focused on electronically conductive polymers and the recovery of noble metals by electroless precipitation in diluted solutions. In 2017, Inês took part of the Summer Student Programme at Helmholtz Zentrum, Wannsee – Berlin, in the Institute for Solar Fuels under the project titled α-SnWO4 thin film photoelectrodes for solar water splitting. Inês' 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.
