I am Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Autonoma of Madrid (UAM) since January 2014. My work is focused in carbon materials and I cooperate with several research lines, namely, separation processes with ionic liquids, chloromethanes removal from gas streams by hydrodechlorination, water purification by photocatalysis and synthesis of carbon materials from biomass. I have co-authored more than 40 publications in SCI journals and 2 patents. I have presented more than 100 national and international communications.
My research aims at understanding the likely consequences of human activities such as nitrogen deposition and climate change on ecosystem structure and functioning and the link between them. I am also interested in how these undesired negative impacts might affect key ecosystem services such as multitrophic biodiversity and above-ground and below-ground carbon storage.
