LAURA ACEBO SIERRA

Presentation

Laura Acebo Sierra is the first promotion of materials engineering degree at the Rey Juan Carlos University. During this degree, she was able to do the internship and the final project at FIDAMC, Foundation for Research, Development and Application of Composite Materials, Madrid. She studied master´s degree between Rey Juan Carlos and Carlos III of Madrid University, whose name is Structural Materials for New Technologies. And the final master project was done at IMDEA Materials, Madrid. After that, she was employed as an engineer at IREC, Energy Research Institute of Catalonia, Barcelona, working on the study of new materials for solar cells. She is currently doing a PhD at CIC energiGUNE, Vitoria, studying different materials for possible application in sodium batteries. During the more than 5 years that she has been working in the world of research, she has been able to acquire great experience and she is able to work with a large number of structural and physicochemical characterization equipment, in addition to analyzing and interpreting the data obtained.
