Postdoctoral Researcher
University of Valencia. Valencia. Spain
Development and optimization of biotechnological processes for microalgae biomass production in waste streams, and for organic residues valorization into bioenergy and bioproducts.
Short Bio: 

Silvia Greses is a postdoctoral researcher in the Unit of Biotechnological Processes of IMDEA Energy. She got the PhD in Chemical, Environmental and Process Engineering at the University of Valencia (2018), granted with a FPI by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. She carried out her thesis in the field of energetic microalgae valorization into biogas via anaerobic digestion, receiving the best thesis award (Cátedra DAM-UV, 2019). Previously, she worked at the Chemical Engineering Department in the University of Valencia where she also obtained a Master on Environmental Engineering (2012). During her PhD, she taught at University of Valencia and made a stay at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (Ås, Norway) to study the microbial communities involved in the anaerobic digestion processes through the 16S rRNA gen, including the bioinformatics and statistical analysis. After her PhD, she joined the CALAGUA research group (University of Valencia) to collaborate in the management of European projects focused on reclaimed water uses. Nowadays, at IMDEA Energy, her research is focused on the development and optimization of biotechnological processes for microalgae culture in waste streams, as well as in the valorization of microalgae and other organic residues into bioenergy and bioproducts.

She is co-author of 11 scientific publications (h index 33), reviewer of international journals and se collaborates in national and European projects, as well as projects with private companies. Her scientific career has been completed with teaching duties, involving supervision of undergraduate students willing to pursue the final course project and PhD thesis.
