Speaker information

Dr Nuria Garcia-Araez,Nuria Garcia-Araez obtained her first-class degree in Chemistry in 2002 at the University of Alicante (Spain), where she also got her Ph.D. (cum laude) in 2007 in the field of single-crystal electrochemistry under the supervision of Prof. Juan Feliu and Dr. Victor Climent. Her Ph.D. work combined infrared absorption spectroscopies, the laser-induced temperature jump method, Monte Carlo simulations, and thorough thermodynamic analyses. In 2007-2011, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the AMOLF Institute in Amsterdam and Leiden University (The Netherlands) with Prof. Huib Bakker and Prof. Marc Koper. She used a variety of optical and nonlinear optical techniques to study the structure and dynamics of water near ions and at electrochemical interfaces. In 2011, she obtained a position as a scientist officer in the group of Prof. Petr Novak at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland, where she studied lithium-air batteries. In 2012 she has been appointed lecturer in electrochemistry at the University of Southampton. Over the course of Nuria’s training, she has been awarded 3 competitive fellowships and 8 academic prizes.
