Predoctoral Researcher
Tandem cells for solar fuels production
Short Bio: 

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.
