Iciar Montes Gutiérrez is graduated in Chemical Engineering from the Castilla La Mancha University in 2015. Her final degree thesis, Develop of a Microbiological Fuel Cell (MFC) prototype for electrogenic microorganism, was carried out in the Electrochemical and Environmental laboratory of the chemical engineering department. Afterwards, she started the Chemical Engineering Master of the mentioned university. While studying, she performed a stay at EMPA, Switzerland, in order to develop her master thesis, Synthesis of nanosilicon particles coated with carbon using inductively coupled plasma for Li-ion batteries, and she performed an internship in the polytechnic university of Gdansk, Poland, in waste water treatment. In june 2017 she joined Electrochemical Processes Unit of IMDEA Energy as a researcher in training in organic redox flow batteries for fast charge for electric vehicles. Since june 2018 is predoctoral researcher in the same unit, working on membrane free redox flow batteries (MFreeB proyect).
