Clara Aduviri Ochoa holds a Bachelor´s degree in Chemical Engineering from the Universidad Mayor de San Simón in Bolivia (pre-. She did her internship at the Lithium Battery Pilot Plant of the Yacimientos de Litio Bolivianos (YLB) company in Potosi, where she was part of the pilot-scale assembly team (for cylindrical and prismatic batteries), as well as the quality control team (in charge of applying extreme conditions of pressure, temperature, overload, and over-discharge) and the research team (responsible for optimizing the process of lithium button batteries assembly with LFP and LCO).

Subsequently, she worked and developed her graduation project at the Lithium Carbonate Pilot Plant of the YLB company, located in the Salar de Uyuni, where she was able to apply her knowledge in scaling, reaction kinetics, 2k experimental design, parameter control, and optimization for the pilot scale production of lithium hydroxide monohydrate. She also supported the production and quality control of lithium carbonate.

She participated in an exchange with the IAESTE program to work in the R&D department of HEMPEL paints, in Barcelona (2018), where she was in charge of optimizing formulas, reformulation, and characterization of physicochemical properties of existing and new decorative coatings.

In 2021 she worked for the CEMVI bottling company (Bolivia), in the administrative sector, where she was responsible for implementing and controlling health and food safety regulations and providing technical support for the purchase of new machinery (FISPAL – BRAZIL). In February 2022 Clara Aduviri joined CIC energiGUNE as a laboratory technician in the Advanced Electrolyte and Cell Integration group.
