Short Bio: 

Gabriel Sánchez obtained his BSc in Chemical Engineering from the University Rey Juan Carlos of Madrid (URJC) in 2015. During his formation, he performed an internship in Repsol as laboratory technician on the Operations Management and Logistic Optimization Department. His final project, entitled “Design of a catalytic reforming plant with acetic acid steam as a model compound of bio-oils for the hydrogen production”, was carried out in the Chemistry and Environmental Engineering Group in the URJC.

Then, he pursued his studies undertaken a MSc Inter-University in Chemical Engineering in the University Autónoma of Madrid (UAM) and URJC. In 2016, he performed an internship period in the Advanced Porous Materials Unit in IMDEA-Energy. His Master Thesis, entitled “Zr incorporation in H-USY zeolite for the xylose and furfural transformation into bio-products”, was carried out the same investigation group in the URJC. In 2017, he was recruited as visiting lecture at URJC, where he achieved teaching assignments and focus his research in the treatment of refinery water using a membrane biological reactor. In 2018, he was engaged as industrial engineer in the General Management from Valdemingómez Technology Park in the Madrid City Council. Finally, in 2020, he joined the Canal de Isabell II as predoctoral researcher to develop his Industrial PhD within the project “Porous materials to minimization of chlorates/chlorites from drinking water. IND2019/AMB-17129”, which will be performed between the Advanced Porous Material Unit at IMDEA-Energy and I+D+i Sub-direction at Canal de Isabel II.
