Dr. María Escudero Escribano modtager Clara Immerwahr prisen 2019

Som den første forsker i Danmark modtager Dr. María Escudero Escribano fra Kemisk Institut Clara Immerwahr prisen 2019. Den internationale pris gives hvert år til en kvindelig forsker under 40 år, som har bedrevet fremragende resultater inden for forskning i katalyse. Og det har Maria. Gennem elektrokatalyse knokler Maria og hendes team for at udvikle effektive katalysatorer, som kan omdanne drivhusgasser til miljøvenligt brændstof, der kan være med til at sikre en grøn omstilling. Stort tillykke til Maria!

Om gruppen Experimental NanoElectrocatalysis:
Our research group investigates novel electrochemical interfaces for sustainable energy conversion devices (e.g. fuel cells and electrolysers) and electrocatalytic synthesis of renewable fuels and chemicals. We combine electrochemical methods with surface science characterisation, in-situ optical spectroscopy, microscopy, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and in-situ synchrotron-based X-ray characterisation techniques in order to understand the structure of the electrochemical interface at the atomic and molecular level. We carry out model studies aiming to understand and tune the activity and selectivity of different electrochemical reactions as well as solving the fundamental challenges that impede the large scale uptake of electrochemical energy conversion technologies. We work in close collaboration with theoretical and experimental groups both at UCPH and international groups at Stanford University, the University of California Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Fritz Haber Institute (Max Planck Society), as well as large companies including Haldor Topsøe.
