Short Bio: 

Enrique García - Quismondo hold a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry by Autonoma University of Madrid (2010). Before joining IMDEA Energy Institute as Postdoctoral Researcher he worked at the R&D Centres of Exide – Technologies and Tecnicas Reunidas, building up an experience of 10 years in the fields of advanced lead-acid batteries, redox flow batteries and metal-air batteries, participating in research projects funded by the European Union, the Spanish Government and by private companies. He undertook a research stay at the University of Wisconsin – Madison (USA) in 2013, working on the preparation of nanostructured ceramic materials from sol – gel chemistry for energy storage applications.

Currently, in the Unit of Electrochemical Processes, his research work is focused on the development of electrochemical energy storage systems and energy efficient desalination processes, as well as on the field of batteries and supercapacitors testing under specific profiles simulating power electrical requirements in emerging applications. His work has led to several scientific publications and he has presented communications to national and international conferences. In 2013 he received a grant for Research in Energy and Environment from Iberdrola Foundation for the project “Redox flow batteries for consumption management of electric power”.
